The group’s president Wolfgang Newmann made the remarks in Bamako after meeting with Mali President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita to thank him for the government’s extraordinary support during the attack.
“We are saddened, shocked and angry at the senseless killing of innocent people that occurred on Friday,” Newmann said, adding that “all efforts were being made to restore the hotel to the state it was in before the attack.”
Noting that he had already met with families of the victims, the Rezidor group president said his organization will provide professional counselling to victims and their families.
He promised that the hotel’s management will jointly with government review the hotel’s security plan. Enditem
