06 September 2006 [09:25] - TODAY.AZ
Following the bomb blast that hit the Turkish region of Van last night, killing at least two people and injuring about twenty, Rene van der Linden, President of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly (PACE), conveyed his sympathies to the families of the victims and expressed his solidarity with all those injured or affected.

As APA reports, the PACE President strongly condemned the attack. "There is still no evidence on the identity of the perpetrators, but whoever the authors are, they are nothing but criminals moved by the sole aim of killing innocent people," he said.

"Terrorism has no justification. It must be considered a crime against humanity and utterly rejected as a means of achieving political ends. It must be fought with all legal means available. We strongly support our Turkish friends in their fight against terrorism," he concluded.
