A Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson issued the following statement today (30 May) on the attacks in central Baghdad in which at least 27 innocent people were killed and many people seriously injured:
We condemn these despicable acts in the strongest possible terms, share the grief of the families of those killed, and hope that those injured will recover soon. At the start of the fasting month of Ramadan, we see once again that nothing is sacred to ISIS. It is thus all the more important that the terrorists’ control be brought to a swift end. In this regard, we stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Iraq in the Global Coalition to Counter ISIS.
