Intel Chairman Burr Statement on Terror Attacks in Spain

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement regarding yesterday’s terror attacks in Spain.


“My prayers are with the families of those killed and wounded in yesterday’s horrific attacks in Spain.  I was saddened to hear that an American citizen was one of those killed and I stand in solidarity with the Spanish people and of all those nations who were affected.  Terrorists are continuing to use simple weapons to inflict great harm on innocent people across the world.  The attacks in Spain and today in Finland remind us that we must remain vigilant and continue our collective efforts to identify terrorists and thwart their attacks.  I will continue to monitor this situation closely and will ensure that our nation provides any requested support to our European allies. “
