Solidarity following the attacks in Tunis

UCLG and its members in Africa and around the world condemn the barbaric attacks perpetrated in the Bardo Museum in Tunis, a place renowned for the promotion of culture and understanding among civilizations. 

The members of UCLG express their solidarity with the Mayor of Tunis, and all Tunisian mayors, and further express their sympathies to the people of Tunis and the families of the victims. This sad news reminds us of the heavy price that cities around the world pay under all forms of terrorism. In these difficult times, we are all behind Tunisia and its local authorities, who are among the founding members of the global movement of local governments.
