Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond responds to terrorist attack in Beirut.
The Foreign Secretary said:
I was horrified to hear of the explosions in Beirut yesterday. My thoughts are with the victims and their families. The UK will stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Lebanon as they face, and defeat, the cowards who perpetrate these acts of terrorism.
