Prague residents express condolences at Norwegian embassy in Prague

Over a hundred Prague residents laid flowers and signed a list of condolences at the Czech capital’s Norwegian embassy on Monday. According to the deputy of Norway’s ambassador to the Czech Republic, Tijana Balac Nilsen, the embassy appreciates the outpour of empathy and support from the Czech population. Among those who expressed their condolences were diplomats from a number of countries, the Prague archbishop Dominik Duka, as well as ordinary Prague residents who pledged their solidarity to Norway in the wake of the twin terror attacks that killed at least 76 on Friday. A special mass in honor of the victims will be held at Prague’s St. Vitus cathedral on Friday.
