Metro collision in Washington
Paris, June 23, 2009
We were distressed to learn of yesterday’s tragic Metro accident in Washington in which several people lost their lives and several dozen were injured, some critically.
In these painful circumstances, we want to assure the victims’ families and loved ones of our deep sympathy, and we send them our most sincere condolences. We wish the many injured a swift recovery.
To the U.S. authorities, to Washington mayor Adrian Fenty, and to the American people, France expresses its deep sympathy.
