Mormon Newsroom France published a statement Friday following the terrorist attack in Nice, France. The statement expresses the sentiments of Elder Patrick Kearon, President of the Europe Area for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and members of the LDS Church in France.
We used Google Translate to interpret the following statement, which was originally published in French:
"Patrick Kearon, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for Europe, and members of the church in France will join all people of good will to express their deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims of the tragic event that occurred last night in Nice. We mourn today as we consider the tragedy that has just taken place and we pray for those affected, their families and loved ones."
At least 84 people were killed in the attack that took place during a fireworks display for France’s Bastille Day celebrations.
