Four Estonians injured in Nice attack ({{commentsTotal}})


Four Estonian citizens were injured in the terror attack in Nice on Bastille Day, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed on Sunday. The people involved included two men who were in Nice on business for the European Innovation Academy, a 14-year-old girl, and her grandmother.

The girl’s grandfather, a Russian citizen, was also injured.

Consul Kadri Metsandi, who was sent to Nice after the attack, confirmed to ETV’s “Aktuaalne Kaamera” that no Estonian citizens had gone missing in connection with the terror attack. She added that the ministry had been able to reach the families of all the people affected.

Metsandi didn’t comment on the condition of the injured Estonian citizens, as this information would involve their personal data.

“At the moment I’m with the family members of those who got injured that are here in Nizza. We’re going through different procedures to help parents get more information, and to support them in other matters. There are forms to fill in. Also, there have been interviews here,” Metsandi said.

According to information available to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, more than 150 Estonians had been in the area when the attack happened. All of them were doing fine, the ministry confirmed.
