ANKARA – Anadolu Agency
"We strongly condemn the attack that took place today (18 March 2019) in the city of Utrecht, in the Netherlands regardless of the identity of the perpetrator and the motivation behind it," the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
Hours earlier, suspected shooter Gökmen Tanış allegedly opened fire on tram passengers at October 24 Square, killing three and injuring five others.
"We extend our condolences and wish fortitude to the families of those who lost their lives, and speedy recovery to those wounded," the ministry said, adding that Turkey was in "full solidarity" with the Dutch people and government.
