MURPHY STATEMENT ON PARIS TERRORIST ATTACKS

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn), member of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement on the coordinated attacks and hostage situation in Paris, France on Friday:

“My heart sunk into my chest when I heard the news of another terrorist attack in Paris. Now is the time for America to stand shoulder to shoulder with France, our unbreakable ally, in this moment of crisis.  We know too well the raw, searing amalgam of fear, anger and sorrow that accompany large-scale terrorist attacks, and the thoughts of everyone in Connecticut are with the people of Paris tonight. As President Obama stated this evening, the United States stands ready to assist in the effort to bring the perpetrators of this horror to justice.”
