These were cowardly terrorist attacks aimed at people on their way to work and going on holiday. Daesh has claimed responsibility and described the men, women and children they murdered as “crusaders.” They have no regard for human life.
All our thoughts are with the families of the dead, all of those injured and with the emergency services for everything they have done to deal with this crisis.
We stand in solidarity with the people of Brussels - today and always. And we say with one voice to those responsible who seek to sow fear and division ‘You will fail because we are determined to hold dear the values we share and the way of life we cherish.’
