United Nations - UN Chief Strongly Condemns Jewish School Shooting in France
United Nations - UN leader Ban Ki-moon has condemned “in the strongest possible terms” the killing of four people outside a Jewish school in France, his spokesman said.
Mr Ban was “saddened by the tragic deaths” of the three children and the father of two of the dead children in the shooting in the southwest city of Toulouse, said UN spokesman Martin Nesirky.
“He condemns in the strongest possible terms this act of violence and expresses his sincere condolences to the victims’ families and the Jewish community, as well to the government and people of France,” said Nesirky.
Mr Ban’s comments join the chorus of world condemnation led by Israel of the shooting of three children and a teacher at a Jewish school in France, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calling it “despicable murder”.
