ITUC condemns bombings in Moscow

29 March 2010: Brussels, 29 March 2010 (ITUC OnLine): The ITUC has condemned the suicide bombings, which caused carnage on the Moscow Metro system on 29 March, as acts of barbarism. Some 38 people are believed to have been killed, and many more injured, as two suicide bombers detonated their bombs at the Lubyanka and Park Kultury stations, some 40 minutes apart.

“Dozens of innocent people were killed or maimed by these appalling and vicious attacks, including many workers travelling to work. The ITUC expresses its condolences to all those affected by these bombs, which were clearly designed to cause maximum casualties and to spread fear and panic. We condemn those responsible for this outrage, and hope that those who orchestrated the attacks will be identified and brought to justice as soon as possible,” said ITUC General Secretary Guy Ryder.

The ITUC represents 176 million workers in 312 affiliated national organisations from 155 countries. http://www.ituc-csi.org http://www.youtube.com/ITUCCSI
