The thoughts and prayers of Kenyans go out to all the victims of last night's attacks in Nice, to their loved ones, and to France. May they find the strength to bear this loss.
These attacks appear to have been motivated by the same evil ideology that has inspired equally vile attacks in Kenya. As a friend and ally of France, and as a nation that has suffered the same evil that was visited on France yesterday, Kenya stands ready to support France in this time of sorrow and grief.
Together, we will do everything we can to defend the cause of democracy, and to defeat the terrorism that brings nothing but hatred and division between peoples.
