Terror attack kills three members of the Togo national football team

(Communicated by Foreign Ministry Spokesman)

The State of Israel strongly condemns the horrific terror attack against the Togo football team, which took place in the Cabinda region of northern Angola on Friday, 8 January 2010.

Nothing can justify the wanton murder of innocent people, especially of athletes on their way to participate in an international sporting event aimed at emphasizing the fellowship and kinship of human beings.

The State of Israel wishes to express its sorrow and commiseration to Togo and Angola, whose citizens were killed or injured in the terror attack, and wishes the wounded a speedy recovery.
