MESSAGE OF CONDOLENCE

Australians mourn the loss of Flight MH17.

There were 298 people on this aircraft - and their deaths offend our sense of justice.

We grieve for all, but particularly for the 37 men, women and children who called Australia home.

Many others were travelling to Australia on Flight MH17, including health researchers who work every day for a better world.

Those lost on Flight MH17 include citizens from Malaysia, Indonesia, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, the Philippines, the United States,
South Africa, New Zealand and Canada, as well as Australia. The Netherlands has borne an unimaginable loss.

Our hearts go out to all their families. We will support them through the difficult times ahead.

In coming weeks, Australians will stand with the families, friends, neighbours and colleagues who have lost people they cherish.

Twenty three million Australians share the sadness of those who mourn.

We are united in grief and in our determination to ensure that justice is done.

THE HON TONY ABBOTT MP
Prime Minister of Australia
