MOSCOW, July 23. /TASS/. The situation in Madagascar has not changed after the abortive assassination attempt on President Andry Rajoelina, the Russian embassy in that country said on Friday.
"It was reported in Madagascar that an assassination attempt on the country’s president had been thwarted. An investigation is underway. Many things are not clear. Nevertheless, the incident has had no impact on the security situation, and life goes on routinely," the embassy said, adding that the embassy is operating as usual.
