Last night’s senseless and violent attack on Manchester’s children, young people and their families has shocked us all.

On behalf of all cities and regions in the EU, I would like to express our condolences and send a message of solidarity to the people of Manchester and all those who work tirelessly to ensure security for our citizens.

The people of Manchester have shown that even in the darkest of moments, kindness, empathy and the human spirit will prevail.

Markku Markkula,
President of the European Committee of the Regions
