Terrorist attack in London – Statement by M. Jean-Yves Le Drian, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs (7 June 2017)


I was greatly saddened to learn that one of the French people previously reported missing has been identified among those who died.

I extend my condolences to our compatriot’s family.

At the moment, the toll of French casualties of the London attack is two dead and eight injured, four of them seriously. We still have no news of one of our compatriots, who remains missing. This toll is likely to change as the British police continue their search.

Our embassy in London and all the government departments concerned are working actively in close coordination with the British authorities, whom we thank for their efficiency.

I assure all the families concerned of my profound solidarity at this painful time. As I pledged in London, everything will be done to support the victims and their families in this ordeal.
