RCG statement on the destruction of the World Trade Centre, New York, and the attack on the Pentagon, Washington, USA, 11 September 2001
On 11 September we witnessed the mass murder of more than 6,000 people in the space of an hour. We watched as ordinary people, many with great courage, faced death at the hands of hijackers. Since then their families and friends, from many nations, have done their best to make sense of what has happened. They have issued posters, placed flowers, burned candles, prayed and held minutes of silence – all attempts to grasp the barbaric atrocity which has devastated their lives. It is now becoming clear that they will never find many of the victims’ bodies which will literally have disappeared off the face of the earth. We send them our sincere condolences.
