Embassy of Switzerland in the United Kingdom

Manchester attack:

The Ambassador and the Embassy of Switzerland in London are deeply shocked to learn of this barbaric and cowardly attack. To deliberately target young people enjoying a concert shows depravity beyond comprehension. Switzerland stands with the UK and our thoughts are with the victims and their families and friends.

If you are concerned about a Swiss citizen, please contact the Embassy on +44 (0) 20 7616 6000 or the EDA Helpline in Switzerland +41 800 24-7-365 / +41 58 465 33 33 (helpline@eda.admin.ch).

For developments, please follow the updates from Greater Manchester Police.
