India – Attacks in Hyderabad (February 21, 2013)



France utterly condemns the attacks that took place in Hyderabad on February 21, 2013, which indiscriminately targeted innocent victims, leaving at least 14 people dead and more than a hundred injured. Our Consul General in Bangalore immediately visited the area in order to express our solidarity with India and to ensure the safety of the French community.

France would like to express its condolences to the families of the victims of this heinous crime. As India and France just reaffirmed during President Hollande’s recent state visit, no compromise is possible with terrorists. Our two countries are determined to combat this threat together.
