Saint Lucia Extends Condolences Following Death of 14 in Spain Attacks

Press Release:-In the wake of two terror attacks in Spain, Prime Minister Honourable Allen Chastanet has extended condolences on behalf of the Government and People of Saint Lucia.

Thirteen people were killed on Thursday when a van reportedly driven by a suspected Islamist militant hit crowds in Las Ramblas. Hours later, in the seaside town of Cambrils there was a second vehicle attack, leaving one dead and six wounded. In total over 100 people from over 20 different countries are reportedly injured.

“These types of atrocities are becoming all too common in Europe and in the heart of busy tourist areas. It is callous and heartless and our prayers are with the families of the innocent victims and injured and also with those waiting for word about their family members,” stated Prime Minister Chastanet.

“This is a difficult time for the Government and People of Spain and we as a nation condemn such attacks. We stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters and friends in Spain and in Europe and we are committed like the rest of the region to stand with Europe against such terror.”

      It is normal for everyone to feel sad about the death of each and every one of the 34 homicide victims that have occurred in Saint Lucia throughout this year, the strange thing is that there are people who believe that everything comes well to criticize government

    Even in the face of such horrible atrocities, some of our insensitive fellow men cannot give the recognize that all the government was doing is simply giving our condolences. What a shame all such ones a good for is to criticize their country.
