Statement on mass murders in Afghanistan and Germany

Statement by Mogens Lykketoft, the President of the United Nations General Assembly  on the recent mass murders in Afghanistan and Germany

New York, 23 July 2016 – I feel the deepest sorrow and anger about the terrible terror attacks and mass murders taking place around the world:

I am shocked by today’s extremely cruel killing of over 80 and injuring of more than 200 people. I send my deepest condolences and compassion to families and friends of those killed and injured and to the people and the Government of Afghanistan; a country, which is still struggling with the very grave consequences of decades of civil war and violent extremism.

Likewise I send my condolences and compassion to the victims and relatives of the mass shooting in Munich yesterday and to the people and the Government of Germany.
