Mass Shootings in the USA – Ohio and Texas

The Government and people of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas are deeply saddened to learn of two mass shootings that occurred in the States of Texas and Ohio, over the weekend.

We convey to the Government and people of the United States of America our profound condolences on the tragic loss of life and the assurance of our continued prayers for the recovery of those injured.

Moreover, we stand with all right-thinking individuals in condemning all forms of violence, especially such acts that are founded in hatred and race supremacy.

Our thoughts and prayers remain with our American brothers and sisters during this distressing time.
