Train accident in Spain – message from President Barroso
I am deeply saddened by the terrible train accident that took place yesterday evening near Santiago de Compostela. Such a serious accident, with so many people dead and injured, is a tragedy for Spain and provokes such deep emotions. In these difficult circumstances I feel very close to all Spanish people.
Personally, and on behalf of the European Commission, I would like to send our most sincere condolences and express our solidarity and support to the families of the victims and those injured.
José Manuel Durão Barroso
