The European Parliament will Continue its Work Despite the Strasbourg Attack
The President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, expressed condolences for the victims in Strasbourg. "I mourn about the victims of the Strasbourg attack," wrote Antonio Tajani in Twitter. ''We will not back down! We will defeat terrorism and those who want to attack our way of life. The European Parliament continues to work'', he said.
The European Parliament will continue its work until the end of the week, despite the attack. The European Parliament "will not be afraid of terrorist or criminal attacks," said Antonio Tajani.
Several MEPs were near the Christmas market in Strasbourg when the shooting began. They have hidden in hotels, restaurants or in the European Parliament building.
An Emergency Protocol was activated in the European Parliament building and entry and exit of the building was prohibited.
