MOSCOW, March 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev offered condolences to King of Belgium Albert II over the death of Belgian citizens in a road accident in Switzerland.
“Accept my sincere condolences over the tragic incident – a road accident in Switzerland that entailed a large death toll of Belgian citizens, including many children among them,” a telegram of condolence runs. “I ask you to convey the words of deep sympathy and support to the families of casualties and the wishes for the soonest recovery to injured people,” Medvedev said in the telegram.
The national mourning was announced in Belgium on Wednesday. All official events will begin with the minute of silence for two days.
The casualties in the road accident became students of two Flemish schools. The students were on the way back home from the vacations in Val d’Anniviers in Switzerland. The bus was carrying 52 people. Some 28 of them died and 24 were injured in the road accident.
