Communiqué issued by the Presidency of the Republic

Paris, April 28, 2011

President Sarkozy was appalled to learn of today’s terrorist attack in Marrakesh.

He utterly condemns this heinous, cruel, cowardly act, which claimed very many lives, including those of French citizens.

At this painful time, he offers his sincerest condolences to the Moroccan authorities and people and extends his deepest sympathy to them, on behalf of all French people.

Every measure is being taken by our representations in Morocco, in full coordination with the local authorities, to provide our compatriots currently in Marrakesh with the necessary assistance./.
