‘Stockholm attack shows relentless combat against terrorism priority’

Paris:

French President Francois Hollande on Friday said that the truck attack in a shopping street in central Stockholm showed that “relentless fight against terrorism must be a priority of European solidarity”.
Expressing dismay and indignation, Hollande sent sympathy and solidarity message to families’ victims, Xinhua reported.

In a joint statement with his German counterpart Sigmar Gabriel, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said they were “distressed by the fact that Sweden may have been the victim of such an act of terrorism.”

“In these difficult times, we stand alongside our Swedish friends. We hope that all the light will be shed on this horrible act,” they added.

Earlier on Friday, a truck crashed into a crowd on a shopping street and a department store in central Stockholm, killing at least four people and wounding many others.
