Following the news of the incidents in Barcelona last night, the Muslim Council of Wales has issued the following statement:

“The Muslim Council of Wales is shocked and saddened by the news of the attacks on members of the public and police officers in Barcelona on Thursday. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families at this difficult time.

“We pray that these senseless criminal acts will only serve to further unite the public in the face of those who seek to spread hatred, violence, and divisions between communities. We trust that the Spanish authorities will investigate and prosecute the perpetrators within the full extent of the law.”
