Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has expressed her shock at the death of two Irish students in a fire in the Irish College Leuven Belgium.
Ms. Anderson stated,
“I was shocked to hear this morning that two students from Ireland have died in the fire at the Irish College in Belgium.
“I have been in contact with the Irish officials to offer any help and support I can provide.
“The Institute for Ireland in Europe in Leuven Belgium has facilitated exchange students from Ireland for over 20 years now and this fire has obviously caused great concern for the families of students who attend there.
“I would like to offer my condolences to the families of the two girls who lost their lives in this tragedy and a speedy recovery to those students who have been injured in the fire.”
