Murder of Northern Ireland Police Officer

Press Statement
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
April 2, 2011


The U.S. Government strongly condemns the appalling murder of the police officer in Omagh, Northern Ireland today. The perpetrators of this cowardly act represent the failures of the past, and their actions run counter to the achievements, aspirations, and collective will of the people of Northern Ireland. Our thoughts are with the family and loved ones of this young man who lost his life because of his decision to serve the entire community. We echo the unequivocal condemnations by Northern Ireland's politicians and call on anyone with information to cooperate fully and expediently with the Police Service of Northern Ireland.
