    Iraqis and Muslims in Wales condemn bombings

    Iraqis and Muslims in Wales were amongst the first to condemn the attacks in London. Harith Ibrahim, chairman of the Iraqi Community Association in Wales, said:

    We are in a united front with the British people against terrorism in Iraq and worldwide. We believe the attack is against the working class, innocent people and civilised societies world wide.

    Saleem Kidwai, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Wales, told BBC Wales:

    Terrorism has got no religion. All Muslims throughout Wales and Britain will pray today, Friday, our special day, for the people.
