Condemnation of attack on a school in Cameroon

The attack, as a result of shootout, is a serious breach of international human rights law, particularly of the Safe Schools Declaration, to which both Spain and Cameroon are signatories. Spain reiterates its commitment to this Declaration and once again advocates the importance of the protection of the basic right to a free and safe education for all.

The Government of Spain expresses its deepest sympathies to the families and friends of the victims and wishes those injured a speedy recovery.
