President Ilves expressed his condolences to the Belgian people after a gunman with hand grenades killed four people, including himself, and wounded about 125 others at a marketplace in Liege on Tuesday.

"The peace of Christmastime has been disquieted by the grief and mourning that struck us after the tragic news,” Ilves said in a letter to King of Belgium Albert II. “Our thoughts are with the next of kin of the victims and we wish a speedy recovery for the wounded.”

“The incomprehensible evil that has struck us during the Christmas season forces us to search for reasons. However, this will not mean that we will close our societies to others as we all do now: openness and democracy are always stronger than anger and evil,” said Ilves.
