No justification for “senseless attack” at Prague University, Czech prime minister says

Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala expressed his condolences to the loved ones of the victims killed in a shooting at Charles University in Prague, writes CNN.

Addressing the nation, he said many young lives were lost in the “senseless attack”.

“There is absolutely no explanation, no justification for this. Like many of you, I am feeling a deep sorrow and disgust over this incomprehensible and brutal violence”, - Fiala said.

The prime minister said officials believe it was an isolated incident and was not an act of terror or an attack by an organized group. He also assured people that there is no longer any danger.

“Dear citizens, please let us think of all those who have lost their loved ones. This Christmas will be unimaginably sad for them. Let us share their sorrow and their pain. At this dark hour, we should come together and respect each other, to show our respect for the victims”, - Fiala said.
