Foreign Minister Constantinos Kombos on Thursday evening extended, on behalf of the Cypriot people, condolences to the families of the victims of a mass-shooting event in Prague.

“Deeply shocked by the terrible shooting at Charles University in Prague,” the minister posted on his official X (formerly Twitter) account.

“Heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims. Speedy recovery to the injured.”

A gunman killed at least 15 people and wounded at least 24 others at the Prague university before he was “eliminated”, according to police and Prague emergency services.
