Norway condemns attack on UN building in Nigeria

OSLO, August 29, 2011/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- Norway condemns attack on UN building in Nigeria

“I strongly condemn today's attack on the UN building in the Nigerian capital, Abuja. We were deeply saddened to hear that a Norwegian UN employee is among those who were killed,” said Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

A 30-year-old Norwegian woman was killed in the attack on the UN offices in Abuja today.

“Our thoughts go to the families of all those affected by this tragedy,” said Mr Støre.

“Such acts of violence are completely unacceptable, and Norway condemns all use of terror. Those responsible must be brought to justice,” said Mr Støre.

“It is particularly worrying that the attacks were targeted at the UN, which works to promote peace and development. Our sympathy goes to the UN and the people and authorities of Nigeria,” said the Foreign Minister.
