South Africa condemns the terrorist attack in the Kingdom of Spain
The South African Government joins the international community in strongly condemning the cowardly terrorist attack in Barcelona and Cambrils on 17 August 2017 which caused the death of 13 innocent people including children and injuries to at least 100 others.
On behalf of the Government and the people of South Africa, H. E. President Jacob Zuma has extended his heartfelt condolences to the Government and the people of the Kingdom of Spain, in particular the families and loved ones of the deceased, and wish the injured speedy recovery.
Acts of violence and extremism have no place in society and constitute a threat to development, peace and security.
