Yemen –Attack on home for the elderly (Aden, March 4, 2016)


France condemns the March 4th attack on a home for the elderly run by nuns from the order founded by Mother Teresa.

Sixteen people were killed in the attack, and an Indian priest was reported missing.

We offer our condolences to the victims’ families and reaffirm our solidarity with the people and authorities of Yemen.

A political agreement between all political forces in Yemen and the implementation of resolution 2216 to effectively combat terrorism are all the more urgent. France reaffirms its support for the efforts of UN Special Envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmad, and calls on all the parties to resume their dialogue.
