Pakistan – Attacks (January 11, 2013)
France utterly condemns yesterday’s attacks in the city of Quetta and the Swat Valley in Pakistan, in which, according to a provisional toll, more than 110 people were killed and hundreds wounded.
At this painful time, France expresses her solidarity with the Pakistani people and stands alongside them in the fight against terrorism.
The attack targeting the Shia community in Quetta was particularly deadly and is part of an intensification of attacks on this community in recent months. We call on the Pakistani authorities to take every measure to stop interfaith violence and combat all forms of extremism on their territory.
