Addis Ababa, Ethiopia – 23 May 2017: H.E. Moussa Faki Mahamat, the Chairperson of the African Union Commission, extends his most sincere condolences to the families of those who died in last night’s bombing in Manchester, the United Kingdom.

The Chairperson also extended his wishes of quick recovery to those who sustained injuries.

“Africa stands with the people and government of the United Kingdom in reaffirming our solidarity with them during this difficult time,” the AU Commission Chairperson said.  “A people united against fear and terror, can never be divided,” he noted.
