Statement from the President of the International Olympic Committee Thomas Bach on the recent terror attacks on Tunisia, Kuwait and France

On behalf of the entire Olympic Movement I would like to express our sympathy for the families and friends of those touched by this tragedy.

These cowardly attacks concern not only the countries directly affected but the whole world community. They are an attack against us all and a threat to humanity. The outrage expressed around the world has united all nations and will hopefully bring a united response.

These attacks also show that the Olympic Values of peace and reconciliation, of bringing all people together under one roof are more needed and more important than ever.

Thomas Bach
IOC President
