Liberia Consoles Sweden Over Tragic Terrorist Attack

MONROVIA, April 11(LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has sent a condolence message to the Government and people of the Kingdom of Sweden, following a tragic terrorist attack.

A truck, hijacked from outside a nearby restaurant, crashed into the front of Ahlens department store in central Stockholm on Drottninggatan (Queen Street), one of the city's main pedestrian thoroughfares in the middle of last Friday afternoon, claiming the lives of four people while 15 others were injured.

According to a Foreign Ministry release, in her message to His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf of the Kingdom of Sweden, President Sirleaf, extended heartfelt condolences to the Government and people of the Kingdom of Sweden, especially the victims and bereaved families for the loss sustained.

“At this very troubling period, we join others in categorically detesting such act of terror, as terrorism has no place in our global village and can never be justified,” President Sirleaf stressed.

The Liberian leader then reassured His Majesty of the country’s commitment in promoting universal peace and prosperity and that Liberia will stand fully in solidarity with the Kingdom of Sweden against terror in all its forms.

She further prayed that the Almighty God will grant His Majesty, the bereaved families and friends affected by this barbaric attack with the fortitude and strength to endure this tragic loss.
