ICFTU Online..., 6 March 2003

Brussels, 6 March 2003 (ICFTU OnLine): In a message of solidarity to its Philippines affiliates the TUCP, the ICFTU has expressed its abhorrence of the bomb attack on Davao City airport in Mindanao, in which more than 20 people were killed and at least 150 injured.

ICFTU General Secretary Guy Ryder reiterated the Confederation's utter condemnation of terrorist attacks and said that the international union movement condemns those who seek to gain advantage through vicious and cowardly actions of this type.

Once again, Ryder added innocent people, including working women and men and members of their families have fallen victim to the actions of those who have no respect for human life.
