Nigeria – Attacks (June 22 to 23, 2015)

France condemns the attacks perpetrated in recent days in Yobe and Borno States, which have left more than 70 people dead. The recruitment of children to commit some of these crimes is especially abhorrent.

We extend our condolences to the victims’ families and to Nigeria’s authorities. Those responsible must be brought to justice.

France stands alongside Nigeria and the countries of the region in the fight against terrorism.
