English Translation: King Philippe of Belgium's Brussels Attack Address

HM King Philippe of Belgium - Brussels, March 22, 2016

Ladies and Gentleman,

Today, our country is in deep mourning. For each of us this March 22 will never be a day like any other. Shattered lives, deep wounds, these sufferings are those of any country.

Mathilde and I share in your sorrow, you who have lost a loved one or who have been wounded in the cowardly and despicable attacks today.

We express our full support for members of the emergency and security services. Our gratitude also goes to all those who spontaneously offer their help.

Faced with the threat, we will continue to respond with determination, with calmness and dignity. Let's maintain confidence in ourselves. This trust is our strength.
