"Luxembourg strongly condemns the disproportionate use of force against civilians and calls for an independent international investigation," the ministry said.

"Everything must be done to prevent further acts of violence."

The ministry said Asselborn joined international calls for calm and restraint on the ground. -- Luxembourg Times
