FCO Minister, Baroness Warsi

Baroness Warsi said:

I condemn the attacks that took place earlier today in the Pakistani city of Peshawar, which killed and injured so many innocent people. These cowardly attacks are especially sickening as they targeted people leaving their place of worship.

I offer my deepest condolences to the families that have lost loved ones and to those injured in the attacks. The United Kingdom will continue to support and work with Pakistan in their fight against terror and violent extremism.
