Wednesday 22 May 2013 – We are shocked by the brutal murder of a soldier in broad day light today in Woolwich. There is no justification for such a heinous crime; criminals and murderers do not represent any community or religion. We remain steadfast in opposing all forms of hate and terrorism.

Our prayers and thoughts go out to the family of the victim.

We ask all communities to remain united and work together in the face of this atrocious event.
