Taoiseach Leo Varadkar on New York terror attack

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has expressed his condolences to the people of New York following the terror attack in Manhattan.

This was a vicious and heartless attack on the people of New York, striking just a few blocks from the site of the 9/11 atrocity.

Those who have been killed and injured were innocent victims going about their day, completely unaware of what was about to happen.

I would like to express our solidarity with New Yorkers, who have faced considerable adversity in the past. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the victims.
