VATICAN CITY, MAY 17, 2003 (VIS) - Following is the text of a telegram sent by Cardinal Angelo Sodano, secretary of state, in the Holy Father's name, to Archbishop Domenico De Luca, apostolic nuncio in Morocco, for the victims of a terrorist attack yesterday in Casablanca:
"Having learned with emotion of the attacks last night in Casablanca, the Holy Father prays for the numerous victims and for their families in this trial. Denouncing once again the blind violence that strikes innocents, he asks the Almighty to enlighten consciences and to aid men in their efforts for peace. On this sorrowful occasion the Pope assures the people and the leaders of Morocco of his deepest sympathy."
