Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 14
By Seba Aghayeva - Trend:
Azerbaijani foreign ministry appealed to its citizens in France, urging them to comply with all the requirements of the state of emergency declared in the country and avoid crowded places in connection with a series of terrorist attacks, Azerbaijani foreign ministry spokesman Hikmat Hajiyev told Trend Nov.14.
The Azerbaijani foreign ministry has instructed the country's embassy in Paris in contact with the foreign ministry and other relevant structures of the country to clarify information regarding its citizens among the victims of the terrorist attacks, Hajiyev said.
Gunmen and bombers attacked restaurants, a concert hall and a sports stadium at locations across Paris Nov.13, killing at least 120 people in a deadly rampage that President Francois Hollande called an unprecedented terrorist attack.
Four gunmen systematically slaughtered at least 87 young people attending a rock concert at the Bataclan music hall. Some 40 more people were killed in five other attacks in the Paris region, including an apparent double suicide bombing outside the national stadium, where the French president Hollande and the German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier were watching a friendly soccer international. Some 200 people were injured.
