The European Union (EU) on Tuesday marked the 10th anniversary of the Madrid train bombings that killed 191 persons and injured at least 1,800 people.

"Ten years later, the physical and mental wounds of the victims who survived are still not healed," an official statement read, adding, "The EU stands firmly against and condemns all terrorist acts."

The EU has devoted March 11 to remembering all victims of terrorist attacks in Europe and elsewhere in the world.

Cecilia Malmstrom, EU home affairs commissioner, said, "We express our sympathy and solidarity with all victims of terrorism, their families and friends."

She said survivors of terrorist attacks and family members of victims can also be important partners to address problems of security and to build a more resilient society.

The European Commission in September 2011 launched the EU Radicalisation Awareness Network, which supports first-line local practitioners involved in preventing radicalisation and violent extremism across the EU. Victims of terrorism play an important role in this network which includes a dedicated working group.

The Commission also provides funding to projects and actions for the aid and protection of victims of terrorism.
