President Duterte condoles with France, condemns terror attack

President Rodrigo R. Duterte expressed his grief on the death of more than 80 people and the wounding of 200 others in Nice, France in what is considered as an act of terrorism.

The President in a  video message said “we share the grief of France in the rampage of multiple murder of their citizens.  We condemn the brutal and violent way that the people were run over by a truck, a terrorist act.”  

PRRD has joined other nations of the world in mourning and expressing solidarity with the French people against terrorism. 

On Friday, a gunman smashed a truck into a crowd of revellers celebrating Bastille Day in the southern resort city of Nice, killing at least 84 people. 

French President Francois Hollande declared the incident as a “terrorist” attack. Several children were among the dead while scores are still in critical condition. (PND)
