Prime minister Alexander Stubb has expressed his condolences on behalf of the Finnish government following the attack at the Charlie Hebdo satirical newspaper’s office in Paris, France, where 12 people were killed, including two policemen, in the early Wednesday afternoon.

Prime minister Stubb offered his condolences also to the French president, François Hollande.

Finland strongly condemns all acts of terror.

“Freedom of expression and a free press are integral elements of European values,” Stubb said.

The office of Charlie Hebdo turned into a blood bath when two masked gunmen burst in and began firing with Kalashnikovs, killing at least 12 before apparently fleeing on foot.
