14 December 2012 - Shooting in Connecticut - Message of President Hollande to President Obama

Paris, December 14, 2012

Mr. President,

I was horrified to learn of today’s shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut.

In these tragic circumstances, I want to express my deep shock and sorrow in the face of this act of unspeakable violence at a primary school that left so many victims.

In this painful moment for the United States, I offer you my heartfelt condolences, both personally and on behalf of the French people.

I would be most grateful to you for kindly conveying my sympathy to the families of the victims of this cruel tragedy.


François Hollande

His Excellency Mr. Barack Obama

President of the United States of America
