VP Boakai Signs Book Of Condolence For France Terrorist Victims

MONROVIA, July 19 (LINA) - Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has signed a book of condolence at the Embassy of France here for the tragic loss of 77 lives in Nice, France at the hand of a truck driver.

The driver fired into a Bastille Day crowd before mowing down people who had gathered to watch fireworks to mark the occasion.

Vice President Boakai described the French people as open and social, and wondered why someone could commit such a heinous crime resulting into deaths of innocent citizens, he told journalists after the signing ceremony.

“We want to console the people of France,” Vice President Boakai said, and recounted the close ties subsisting between Paris and Monrovia dating back many years.

Earlier, the Vice President held a tete-a-tete with the French Ambassador near Monrovia, Joel Godeau.

In a separate development, Vice President Boakai Tuesday hosted a breakfast meeting with over 30 children from Bong County at his residence in Paynesville, under the Layma Gbowee Peace Foundation.

According to the Nobel Peace Laureate, the children were brought together to be taught peace and integrity and for some to begin a whole new journey at the end of which one could become a peace ambassador.

Earlier, Vice President Boakai and Mrs. Kartumu Y. Boakai welcomed the children into their home whose ages range from ten to sixteen.
