11 March 2011 - Day of Remembrance of Victims of Terrorism

11 March 2011 marks the seventh anniversary of the Madrid train bombings that killed 191 and injured at least 1800 people commuting to work.
Seven years later, the physical and mental wounds of the victims who survived are still not healed.
The European Union has devoted 11th March to remembering all victims of terrorist attacks in Europe and elsewhere in the world.
Terrorism can strike anywhere and at any time. The EU stands firmly against and condemns all terrorist acts.
