British Prime Minister Tony Blair says he is “desperately sorry” for the death of a Brazilian electrician shot dead by London police after being mistaken for a suicide bomber.
Jean Charles de Menezes, 27, was killed by police at Stockwell underground station in south London on Friday.
The commission investigating his death said Mr Menezes was shot at close range eight times, not five, as originally reported.
Prime Minister Tony Blair said he was “desperately sorry” for the shooting.
You can tell he really means it, too. He’s really, really sorry. He feels just terrible about it. It burns him up inside. It’s been keeping him awake at night. Honest.
Tony Blair: he means it, maaaan. He’s got that whole “I’m sincere, me” thing down.
