Somali Co-ordinating Committee condemns London Bombing "Hideous Crimes"

We, on behalf of the wider Somali and Muslim community, totally condemn the recent hideous crimes perpetrated by these criminals. Furthermore we totally dissociate ourselves with these individuals, and would like to appeal to the public in support of the police in order to bring these perpetrators to justice.

We would also like to pass our sincere condolences to the bereaved and their families as well as the family of Jean Charles de Menezes. Finally, we totally support the police and appreciate comments made by Sir Ian Blair, Met Commissioner with regards to our faith, in that Islam is a peaceful religion and does not support or preach any form of terrorism. This is a time for all Londoners and communities to come together to show resilience, tolerance and support for one another.We must maintain and preserve our unity, anything less is capitulation to those who seek to divide us.If anyone does have any information we would urge them to contact the Anti Terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321.
