MUSLIMS in Leamington have condemned the terror attack in Manchester

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in the town expressed its”deepest sympathies and condolences” to all those affected by the “barbaric and inhumane attack” at the Manchester Arena.

Local president Mohammed Salim said: “Many innocent people including children lost their lives and scores were injured. We can only be shocked and appalled by the brutality and disregard for human life.

Never can such attacks be justified in any shape or form and so all forms of terrorism and extremism must be condemned in the strongest possible terms.

“May God comfort the bereaved and those affected in any way and may He bestow His Grace and Mercy on all those who have lost their lives. May He also grant a full and swift recovery to the injured.”

The attack happened at around 10.30pm on Monday at the Manchester Arena, shortly after a concert by US singer Ariana Grande.

Greater Manchester Police said 22 year-old Salman Abedi, who died in the blast, was carrying a homemade explosive device.

The explosion came shortly after the singer left the stage of the 21,000 capacity venue – and 60 ambulances rushed to the scene.

Twenty-two people have been confirmed dead, including eight year-old Saffie-Rose Roussos, and 18 year-old Grande superfan

Georgina Callander. A further 59 were injured – some critical.

Theresa May said the bombing had been a “callous terrorist attack” that targeted “defenceless young people”.

It is the worst terrorist attack in the UK since the July 7 bombings in 2005, in which 52 people were killed by four suicide bombers.
