Commenting on the coordinated attacks that killed more than 50 people and injured 200 in Baghdad today, the Foreign Secretary, William Hague said:
I condemn today’s cowardly attacks in Baghdad. The vast majority of Iraqis want to leave behind the violence of the past to build a peaceful and prosperous country, and the UK Government will continue to support them to do so.
At this time in particular, we remember all those - British, Iraqi and others - who lost their lives in conflict in Iraq. We also recognise the sacrifices and determination of the Iraqi people, to overcome terrorism, conflict and division, and reassert our commitment to help Iraq as it rebuilds for the future.
