On 11 March, the European Commission and the Radicalisation Awareness Network Centre of Excellence organise in Brussels a dedicated event to mark the 12th European Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Terrorism. Dimitris Avramopoulos, Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, will open the conference at 9:30. The event brings together victims from recent and past terrorist attacks, victim associations, students, and high-level European dignitaries. The programme features testimonies of victims from attacks that occurred in Bataclan, Madrid, Norway, and Tunisia.
11 March marks the 12th anniversary of the Madrid train bombings that killed 191 and injured at least 1800 people commuting to work. The European Union, together with the Radicalisation Awareness Network Centre of Excellence, has devoted 11 March to commemorate the victims of terrorist attacks in Europe and elsewhere in the world. The event is open to the press.
