Terrorist attacks in New York and Washington

The Secretary General of Interpol has approved the following statement:

The terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, and possibly other parts of the United States, represent a human tragedy of immense proportions and our hearts go out to those who have lost their lives, to those injured and to the families of all those involved.

Interpol is co-ordinating with its 178 member nations in the collection of police information to assist in determining the origins of these heinous criminal acts and to help bring the perpetrators to justice.

Thus we are giving highest priority to 24 hour worldwide operational support to assist our police colleagues in the United States and throughout the world.

To comment further at this early stage would be imprudent.

Any one with any information concerning these events should contact their national law enforcement services and /or the Interpol National Central Bureau in their country.
