The directors and staff of the World Advertising Research Center and World Advertising & Marketing News wish to convey their profound sympathy to the people of the United States in the aftermath of the appalling loss of life, injury and bereavement inflicted by the events of yesterday.

In common with all who hold humanity more precious than ideology, we join with the rest of the civilised world in condemning this and all other terrorist attacks on innocent civilians.

To those affected by this horrifying tragedy we extend our hopes for a return to peace and normality at the earliest possible time.
