On Wednesday, January 7, in Paris twelve people were killed, almost all cartoonists of the magazine Charlie Hebdo; the attack was followed by other terrorist actions that led to more deaths.
The Republic of Equatorial Guinea has expressed its revulsion at these actions with official communications; the President of the Nation, H.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, sent a message of condolence addressed to his counterpart, H.E. François Hollande, in solidarity with the pain of the French institutions.
