Statement by the spokesperson of High Representative Catherine Ashton on the killings at the Ozar Hatorah school in Toulouse (20/03/2012)
High Representative Catherine Ashton strongly condemns the killings at the Ozar Hatorah school in Toulouse yesterday and extends her sympathies to the families and friends of the victims and to the people of France and the Jewish community.
We want to make this clear, because her words yesterday at the UNRWA event were grossly distorted by one of the wires.
In her remarks, the High Representative referred to tragedies taking the lives of children around the world and drew no parallel whatsoever between the circumstances of the Toulouse attack and the situation in Gaza.
