Statement following the death of 16 year old Daniel Viflic, who had been gravely wounded in an attack by Hamas on an Israeli school bus on 7 April.
Foreign Secretary William Hague said:
“I learned with sorrow of the death today of Daniel Viflic, who had been gravely wounded in the attack by Hamas on an Israeli school bus on 7 April. Daniel was just 16.
“The tragedy of his death is brought home all the more in that it occurs on the eve of Passover, normally a time of celebration for Jewish families all over the world.
“I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Daniel’s family. And I reiterate my utter abhorrence of the cowardly attack which cost him his life, and my call for an end to all such attacks on innocent civilians”.
