I am deeply shocked to hear about the violent act which cost three innocent people’s lives at the Jewish Museum in the city centre of Brussels this afternoon. In my own name and on behalf of the European Commission, I convey my sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims of this tragic crime.
I strongly condemn that this terrible act seems to have been directed at a religious symbol in the heart of the European capital. This was an attack at European values which we cannot tolerate.
