Paris Attacked- President Aquino's Statement

Today, we witnessed the merciless face of terrorism again. Over a hundred people are dead as bombs and automatic rifle fire claimed the lives of innocent civilians in Paris. The attacks on a concert venue, the vicinity of a stadium, and on restaurants showed not only premeditation but the cruelty that demands the greatest indignation from the world.

According to President Noynoy Aquino, terror and brutality have plunged the City of Light, Paris, into the darkness of horror and grief. The Philippines and its people stand in solidarity with the people of Paris and all of France, in this time of deepest sorrow and the gravest outrage against the perpetrators of these crimes.


Statement
of
His Excellency Benigno S. Aquino III
President of the Philippins
On the brutal attacks that occurred in Paris, France
[Released on November 14, 2015]
Terror and brutality have plunged the City of Light, Paris, into the darkness of horror and grief. The Philippines and its people stand in solidarity with the people of Paris and all of France, in this time of deepest sorrow and the gravest outrage against the perpetrators of these crimes.
The deaths of over a hundred in the attack on the Bataclan Concert Hall, the vicinity of the Stade de France, and on restaurants in the city center, were atrocities that demand a united voice from the world in condemnation and grief. In our time of need, France and her people stood shoulder to shoulder with the Philippines in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan. We stand with France now, in the firm belief that the light must never dim in Paris.
For our part, we reassure our fellow citizens that we are taking all necessary precautions. The PNP is on alert and our security forces are assessing the situation, including the continuing evaluation of our security procedures. There is no credible threat registered at this time but let us all be cooperative and vigilant. The Department of Foreign Affairs will be issuing updates on the situation in Paris and has been directed to render all necessary assistance to our countrymen in France.
