Letter from President François Hollande to President Barack Obama
Paris, December 14, 2012
I was horrified to learn of today’s shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
In these tragic circumstances, I want to express my deep shock and sorrow in the face of this act of unspeakable violence at a primary school that left so many victims.
In this painful moment for the United States, I offer you my heartfelt condolences, both personally and on behalf of the French people.
I would be most grateful to you for kindly conveying my sympathy to the families of the victims of this cruel tragedy.
François Hollande, President of France
