BIRMINGHAM CONDEMNS WOOLWICH MURDER
Birmingham stands united in joining the nation in strongly condemning the abhorrent and brutal murder in Woolwich yesterday. The incident is a truly barbaric crime and has no place in any society.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and his family. We understand the victim to be a serving British soldier and extend our sympathy to members of the Armed Forces at this difficult time.
We also condemn the attacks on places of worship following the murder and urge communities to remain calm and come together in solidarity.
We call upon all people to join us in praying for the victim, his family and for the peace of our Cities.
