Statement by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny T.D.

On behalf of the Irish Government, I extend my condolences to the families of those killed in tonight's barbaric attack on the Christmas market in Berlin. Our thoughts are with those injured and their families. Any Irish citizens with concerns should phone (+353) 1 4082000.
I condemn the callous murder of Russia's Ambassador to Turkey and offer condolences to Ambassador Karlov's family.
I condemn the cowardly attack on worshippers at prayer in Zurich this evening. 
These acts of violence have no place in society and constitute an attack on our fundamental values.
