Condolences to Estonia

The news that Estonian citizens are among the 84 victims of the mass murder perpetrated in Nice, France, last week has prompted expressions of sympathy and solidarity from Latvian officials for our northern neighbor. 

Estonia's foreign ministry on Tuesday morning said it had received confirmation from French authorities that two Estonians were among the dead.

It was previously reported that four Estonians were among the injured.

"I express my heartfelt condolences to the families of the Estonian citizens who have lost loved ones in the terrorist attack... This is the first time that terrorism has affected us all so painfully and directly. I have no words to describe the sadness and pain this brutal tragedy has caused to so many," said Estonian foreign minister Marina Kaljurand. 

Latvian Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis on Tuesday tweeted his condolences and said Latvia stood together with Estonia.

Latvia's embassy in Tallinn added its voice, too, writing "We are with you!" in Estonian:

Foreign minister Edgars Rinkevics said "your pain is our pain"

Four Estonians were among the scores of people killed and injured when a deranged individual drove a truck into crowds celebrating Bastille Day.

We at LSM would also like to offer our condolences to our friends in Estonia.
