ECF condemns the terrible attacks perpetrated in the Bardo Museum in Tunis on 18 March.
We express our solidarity with our partners and the people of Tunisia, and send our condolences to the families of the victims. We are deeply saddened that these attacks have focused on travellers seeking out the rich cultural roots of Tunisia and North Africa and that the open and normally safe space of a Museum has become a battlefield.
These barbaric acts remind us again of the danger confronted by people in all regions of the world in the face of terrorism.
