Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou has communicated with her Austrian counterpart Alexander Van der Bellen to extend her condolences over Monday’s Vienna shootings.

Appalled by the terrorist attacks in Vienna, I expressed to President Van der Bellen my condolences for the families of the victims and the Austrian people,” Sakellaropoulou said in a tweet.

“Europe stands united in the fight against terrorism and will spare no effort to safeguard our values and ideals,” she added.

An elderly man, an elderly lady, a young passerby and a waitress were the victims of what Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz Kurz called a “cold-blooded murder.”
