First Minister's statement on Woolwich attack

Wales' First Minister Carwyn Jones (pictured left) has made this statement on yesterday's attack in Woolwich in which a young soldier from Greater Manchester was killed:

“The horrific events in Woolwich yesterday will be condemned by communities across Wales. 

"I have today spoken to Brigadier Napier, the Army Commander for Wales, to express solidarity with the Armed Services and to send our deepest condolences to the family of the serviceman killed yesterday.

"As Chair of the Faith Communities Forum, I am proud that Wales is a multi-cultural society that enjoys the experiences and vibrancy that this brings to our country.

“Now is not the time to point fingers and play into the hands of these isolated attackers, but is a time to build on the strong unity of our communities and defy the very nature of these barbaric attacks.”
