"The murder of a large number of residents of al-Baghdadi town in western Iraq, who are reported to have been burned alive, is further evidence of the denial by Da'esh's of human life and dignity.

Our thoughts go to the families of the victims of this act of terrorism.


L'exécution d'un grand nombre de résidents de la ville d'Al-Baghdadi dans l'ouest de l'Iraq, qui auraient été brûlés vifs, illustre une fois de plus le mépris de Daech pour la vie et la dignité humaines.

Nos pensées vont aux familles des victimes de cet acte de terrorisme.

It is with great sadness that I learnt about the death of former UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali.

The successful organisation of the presidential and parliamentary elections on 14 February in the Central African Republic, which took place peacefully throughout the country, shows once again the people's determination to take their future into their hands by democratic means. All the stakeholders and Central African institutions, and in particular the National Electoral Authority, did everything in their power to respond to the shortcomings that had led the Transitional Constitutional Court to cancel the first round of the parliamentary elections.
