Joint Statement by President Barroso and High Representative / Vice President Ashton following the terrorist act in Marrakech
"We strongly condemn this hideous terrorist act that killed and injured innocent people from different countries in Marrakech, Morocco, on 28 April.
We express our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and to the Moroccan Authorities, and wish a rapid recovery to those who were injured by the explosion.
The European Union stands with the people of Morocco at this difficult time. Marrakech will surely continue to be a symbol of multiculturalism and a crossroad of cultures.
The perpetrators of this attack have shown no respect for human life and dignity and should be brought to justice."
