The world has suffered yet another huge blow after a terror attack in Paris, France Friday night. Terrorists staged a series of attacks in different parts of the French capital, even sending soccer fans who were watching France’s friendly match against Germany at Stade de France scampering for safety.

Shock, horror for 80,000 fans at Stade de France

The attack has left almost 120 people dead and scores injured. Many leaders across the globe among them President Uhuru Kenyatta have come out to condemn the barbaric act and to show solidarity with the families who’ve lost their loved ones in the attack. President Uhuru penned down a condolence message to the French people on behalf of Kenyans.  Below is the letter, read through;

“Today, as in the years past, the people and the government of Kenya stand with France at a moment in which our common humanity has been attacked in Paris by terrorists, and innocent civilians murdered in cold blood. We send the families, friends and compatriots of those murdered our heartfelt condolences.

As a nation that has suffered similar outrage, we understand that the attacks in Paris must be met with the strongest action by our security forces. Kenya stands ready to offer every assistance possible in this regard, and indeed we will continue to relentlessly prosecute our war against terrorist groups and their support networks.
