President John Dramani Mahama has condemned the terrorist attacks across Paris last Friday.

He also expressed his condolences to President Francois Hollande and the people of France for the dastardly attacks.

In a statement copied to the French Embassy in Accra, President Mahama described as horrific the attack on innocent civilians in Paris, which has now claimed over 120 lives and injured nearly 400.

“On behalf of the people of Ghana, I send to the families of the victims of these despicable attacks, our condolences. 

"May those who survived be comforted and healed. Ghana stands by a grieving France in this time of difficulty”, President Mahama stated.

The statement said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration was working with the Ghana Embassy in Paris to update Government on further developments and also work with the French Authorities to ensure the safety of Ghanaians in France.
