Moment of silence for France at Classic final
A moment of silence will be observed before the World Rugby Classic game this evening, according to the French Consulate in Bermuda.
It comes after more than 120 people were killed in co-ordinated terrorist attacks across the French capital.
“We will observe a moment of silence this evening before the rugby game,” Nicole Haziza, the honorary French Consul, said.
Ms Haziza thanked the Governor of Bermuda, George Fergusson, and Michael Dunkley, the Premier, on behalf of the French community of Bermuda for “expressing their support in these difficult times”.
She added: “I also thank the residents of Bermuda, who have joined the people of France in mourning the victims of terrorism. Your show of solidarity and expressions of condolence have been deeply moving.”
France play the United States Eagles in the Plate final at 7.15pm today at North Field, National Sports, in the prelude to the Classic final between the Classic All Blacks and the Classic Lions at 8.30pm.
