VATICAN CITY, NOV 20, 2003 (VIS) - This morning Joaquin Navarro-Valls, director of the Holy See Press Office, made the following statement after the attack in Istanbul, Turkey in which many people died:
'The barbaric logic of terrorism only causes the death of innocent people and destruction. In addition, it aggravates the problems that it claims to resolve. The words of the Holy Father come to mind: 'Terrorism is based on contempt for the dignity of man' and therefore 'it is a crime against humanity,' especially 'when it becomes a political strategy'.'
