Archbishop responds to attacks in Tunisia, France and Kuwait

Friday 26th June 2015

Responding to attacks in Tunisia, France and Kuwait today, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said:

"All of us must be full of grief at the attacks in Tunisia, France and Kuwait. They are intended not only to destroy but to divide, not only to terrify but to take from us our own commitment to each other in our societies. Let us together mourn for the victims, weep with the bereaved, support the injured and pray for them all to the God who in Jesus Christ went to the Cross and died rather than bearing a sword.

"Facing such a global and long term menace we are called to reaffirm our solidarity with each other and affirm the great treasures of freedom, in religion and so many other ways. Our strength is in the God who conquered evil when Jesus rose from the dead, and on His death and victory we find the basis for our future."
