TERRORIST ATTACKS IN FRANCE, KUWAIT, SOMALIA, AND TUNISIA

TERRORIST ATTACKS IN FRANCE, KUWAIT, SOMALIA, AND TUNISIA

 

Labor condemns the terrorist attacks in France, Kuwait, Somalia, and Tunisia, in the strongest possible terms.
We offer our condolences to the loved ones of those killed and injured.

 

Our thoughts are with all nations affected by this senseless violence.

 

These were attacks aimed at the innocent. Acts of hatred, designed to provoke fear.

 

As an international community we say with one voice: such crimes will never go unchallenged, or unpunished.  Terror has no place in our world.

 

We urge Australians in the countries affected, or those thinking of travelling there, to follow the advice of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

 

For any Australians that need assistance, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's 24 Hour Consular Emergency contact is 1300 555 135, or from outside Australia +61 2 6261 3305 (telephone) +61 421 269 080 (SMS).

 

Labor will do all it can to support the Australian Government at this terrible time.
