Jean-Claude Juncker, EPP Candidate for President of the European Commission's statement after the shooting at the Jewish museum in Brussels

Brussels, 25 May 2014
 
Jean-Claude Juncker, EPP candidate for President of the European Commission, made this statement following the shooting that left four people dead at the Brussels's Jewish museum:
 
"I was profoundly shocked to learn of the tragic deaths yesterday in Brussels. My heart goes out to the victims' families, whose senseless loss I can only fathom.
 
That the attack seems to have been anti-Semitic and targeted at the Jewish museum makes this tragic act all the more disturbing. Religious intolerance has no place on our continent."
