Fire during religious celebration in Senegal

​The Government of Spain was dismayed at the news of the tragic fire on 12 April during a religious pilgrimage in the town of Medina Gounass, killing 25 and injuring another 80

15/04/2017

At this tough time, the government expresses its deepest sympathies to the families of the victims, to the members of the Tijaniyyi brotherhood and the authorities of Senegal, as well as to the authorities of Mauritania and Gambia, since the citizens of these countries were among the victims. It also hopes that those injured enjoy a speedy and full recovery.
