Uganda – Bombings in Kampala

Published on July 12, 2010
Statement by Bernard Kouchner, Minister of Foreign and European Affairs

Paris, July 12 2010

I utterly condemn the bombings in Kampala on Sunday, 10 July, for which reports speak of a provisional toll of at least 74 dead and over 200 injured. The perpetrators of these barbarous acts must be identified, tracked down and brought before the courts.

In these painful circumstances, France wants to express her most sincere condolences to the Ugandan authorities and people, and especially the families and close friends of the victims, who were of several nationalities.

France stands at the Ugandan people’s side and supports Uganda in her fight against terrorism./.
