Pusic extends condolences to Clinton on Newtown crime




Croatian First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Vesna Pusic has extended condolences to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the massacre in a school in Newtown, the foreign ministry said on Saturday.

"Genuinely shaken by the tragedy in the school in Newtown, in which many children and their teachers were killed, I am extending my deep condolences to you and the families of all victims," Pusic said in a note.

Adam Lanza on Friday killed about 20 children and six adults in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. He then killed himself.
