Shooting in a school in Connecticut - Statement by the Spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

We were deeply shocked to learn of the shooting in an elementary school in Connecticut, which, according to reports that remain provisional, has resulted in the death of almost 30 people, including a very large number of children.

In these tragic circumstances which have plunged America into mourning, France would like to express its wholehearted solidarity with the American authorities and people and to extend its condolences to the families and friends of the victims.
