The horrible terrorist outrage against the people of Madrid this morning has been condemned by the leader of the EPP-ED Group in the European Parliament, Hans-Gert Poettering. He said:
„I condemn in the strongest possible way this murderous terrorist attack on ordinary, innocent people going about their daily business. This was another attack on democracy. We cannot and will not ever allow the people who perpetrate such horrible acts of violence to benefit in any way from their cowardly acts.
„On behalf of my Group, the Group of the European People’s Party and European Democrats, in the European Parliament, I extend our deepest condolences to the victims and their families and to the government of Spain“.
