Statement by the President of the Congress following the Strasbourg attack

“I am terribly shocked by the shooting that occurred yesterday in the centre of Strasbourg at the Christmas Market.
My thoughts are with the victims and their families. On behalf of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities, I would like to express our deepest condolences and support to all those who face this tragedy.
I also wish to express my support and that of the Congress to the French authorities and their representatives. I think, especially of the Mayor of Strasbourg, Mr Roland Ries, who makes every effort to make Strasbourg the city we know and love. We are all from Strasbourg today and we stand together with the community and in solidarity with both local and national authorities”
