«The Olympic Values are more important than ever»

International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach has condemned the terrorist attacks in Brussels today as odious. Two explosions hit the capital's Zaventem airport, while another blast targeted the Maelbeek metro station. At least 30 people have been killed in Brussels, with more than 200 injured. The Islamic State claimed the responsibility.

President Bach mentioned that "The IOC strongly condemns these cowardly terrorist attacks. Our thoughts and our deep sympathies are with all the victims and their families and friends. Such odious attacks are directed against all human and Olympic values. We stand side by side with the Belgian and European people. These and other terrorist acts in different countries show that the Olympic values of understanding, respect and peace are more important than ever for our world.”
