O’Neill condemns Barcelona slaughter

18 August, 2017 - by Michelle O'Neill

Sinn Féin leader in the north Michelle O'Neill has condemned the Barcelona attack as a ‘horrific attack on men, women and children’.

Expressing sympathy and solidarity with the families of those killed and injured, Michelle O'Neill said: 

"The horrific attack in Barcelona was an appalling and indiscriminate slaughter of men, women and children.

“The scale of the devastation caused is heart-breaking.

“It is sickening to think that people deliberately set out to kill and maim people who were simply out enjoying a summer evening in one of the world’s most beautiful and welcoming cities. 

"My thoughts are with the families and friends of all those who have lost loved ones and those who were injured, as well as the emergency services who attended the scene.”
