Prime Minister Freundel Stuart has extended sympathy to the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, on the loss of life of innocent civilians occasioned by “an evil and brutal act of terror” in Orlando, Florida, over the weekend.

In correspondence sent to the US President, Mr. Stuart said: “Barbados, like other peace-loving and free societies, repudiates such barbarity and the affront to human dignity.

“I am confident that the resilience of the American people will serve them in good stead as they seek to recover from this outrageous deed.”

Mr. Stuart said that at this time of sorrow and mourning, the Government and people of Barbados were praying for the bereaved and for the safety of the people of the United States of America.
