Interpol to support authorities affected by terror attacks

As Interpol’s 24-hour Command and Coordination Centre at its General Secretariat headquarters is in close contact with the National Central Bureaus in Paris, Tunis, Kuwait, and Mogadishu to provide any assistance requested, the international police agency condemned the attacks which left more than 80 dead.
