It is with deep sorrow and dismay that I received news of Anna Lindh's death this morning.

My thoughts are with her family in this difficult time.

I have had the honor of meeting Anna Lindh and I have enormous respect for her deep involvement in issues that affect us all.

Anna Lindh was an exemplary person and leader in Sweden as well as on the international scene.
Anna Lindh's death is a great loss for us all.
