Democratic Republic of Congo/sinking of a boat
Paris, 29 July 2010
I was deeply shocked to learn of the heavy human death toll of the sinking on 28 July of a boat carrying passengers on the Kasai River, a tributary of the Congo River in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
In these particularly painful circumstances, I want to express France’s solidarity to the Congolese people and authorities.
I extend my heartfelt condolences to the bereaved, who have suffered such a cruel loss./.
