Rome, April 16 - Outgoing Italian Premier Mario
Monti has sent a message to United States President Barack Obama
to condemn the Boston bomb attack and give Rome's support to the
American people.
Three people were killed and at least 132 injured in two
explosions in the area of the finish line of the Boston Marathon
on Monday in the worst bombing on US soil since the attacks of
September 11, 2001.
Monti described the bombings as a "cowardly act of violence
that provokes scorn" and had caused "suffering and horror" in
the message.
"In these tragic moments, we are profoundly close to the
American government and the American people with feelings of
fraternal solidarity," Monti said.
"I especially express profound condolences to the families
of the victims and our sincerest best wishes to the injured.
"I'm certain that even in these painful circumstances,
America will know how to respond while reaffirming its great
fundamental values of civilisation".
Boston police sources said that at the moment there were no
reports of any Italians being hurt in the bombings, but they
stressed that it was still too early to be certain.
Obama pledged that the US authorities would track down the
people behind the blasts.
"Make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this and we
will find out who did this," the president said.
"Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will
feel the full weight of justice".
