EU Presidency statement on today’s attack in Yemen

The EU Presidency expresses its sincere condolences to the families of the two Belgian tourists and their Yemenite driver, who were killed in an attack in Wadi Do'an in the Wadi Hadramaut region of Yemen this morning. The Presidency also wishes to send a message of support to all the victims who were wounded in the attack.

This is the second time in little more than six months that European tourists have been attacked and killed by criminals in Yemen.

The EU Presidency strongly condemns all forms of violence and calls on the Government of Yemen to bring the perpetrators of these crimes to justice.
