The Brazilian Government received with profound dismay and indignation the news of the attack on a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, which has killed more than 50 people and left dozens injured.
The Consulate General of Brazil in Miami is in close contact with the local authorities and with the Brazilian community in Orlando. To date, there are no news of Brazilians among those harmed by the attack.
While conveying its sympathy to the families of the victims, the people and the US Government, the Brazilian Government reaffirms its firmest rejection to any act of terrorism. No motivation, no argument justifies the use of similar murderous barbarism.
