“Our Thoughts and Prayers Are with Families of Victims”

Sarajevo mayor Abdulah Skaka expressed condolences to the mayor and citizens of Barcelona after the Thursday terror attack. Thirteen people died and tens were injured when a van ploughed into crowds in the city’s Las Ramblas area, the police said. The vehicle sped along the pedestrian area that is popular with tourists, mowing down people and sending others fleeing for cover.


“We condemn any form of terrorism, violence and spreading of hate. Our thoughts and prayers are with families of the victims, citizens of Barcelona and Spain,” said mayor Skaka in a statement.

Sarajevo and Barcelona are sister cities for 21 years now, and Barcelona was there for the citizens of Bosnian capital during its most difficult time, the Sarajevo siege of the nineties, the city administration said.
