UEFA president, Michel Platini who is currently serving a 90-day suspension has sympathized with the victims of the Paris attacks.
129 are dead, with 99 critically injured according to the latest figures released by French officials, following what can only be called coordinated attacks in the capital.
The Stade de France that hosted France’s 2-0 friendly win over Germany, was also a victim of a bomb blast, taking three casualties.
And now Platini, who is also French and running for FIFA President has sympathized with his countrymen.
“I would like to express my deep sorrow and profound indignation at such acts of blind barbarity,” Platini said in a statement.
“I would also like to offer my condolences to the families of the victims and I hope for a prompt recovery to the wounded.”
All Uefa-sanctioned matches over the coming days, including the Euro 2016 play-offs, will be preceded by a minute’s silence.
Teams involved in these fixtures will also wear black armbands as a mark of respect.
