Luton Council of Faiths has condemned the terror attack in Tunisa on Friday in which 38 people were killed.

In a statement the organisation said: “We strongly condemn such actions of mindless violence.

“While such extremist minorities continue to stir up hatred, division and violence, we call upon the vast majority of peace loving people from across different faiths and also those with no particular faith affiliation, to reflect and act together on our mutual obligations for peaceful co-existence.”

The voluntary body, made up of people of different faiths and cultures in the town added: “With much regret and extreme sadness, we express our heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the families and friends of those killed.

“Words cannot describe the hurt, pain, anger and frustration such awful events cause to us all.”

At the time of going to press 28 Britons had been named among the dead

A minute’s silence will take place on Friday, at 12pm, outside LutonTown Hall.
