HM the King Offers Condolences to Sri Lanka's President over Terrorist Attacks on Hotels and Churches

HM King Mohammed VI sent a message of condolences and compassion to president of the democratic socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, Maithripala Sirisena, after the terrorist attacks targeting churches and hotels, on Sunday, leaving several people dead and injured.

"I was deeply shocked and saddened by the news of the terrorist attacks on hotels and churches in Sri Lanka, during Easter services, in which scores of innocent victims unfortunately lost their lives. May they rest in peace," says HM the king in the message.

On this very sad occasion, the Sovereign expresses to Sri Lanka’s head of State, the grieving families and the people of Sri Lanka his sincere condolences and deepest sympathy, wishing the injured a speedy recovery.

“The kingdom of Morocco strongly condemns this heinous, terrorist act which is utterly inconsistent with the teachings of all religions and with human values,” stresses HM the king.
