British Prime Minister David Cameron gives a short media conference, declaring that “our hearts go out to the victims” of today’s terror attacks.
He promises “solidarity in fighting this evil of terrorism” and calls it “a threat that faces all of us.”
Such terror attacks “can happen everywhere,” he says. What’s needed is a capacity to fight terrorism “at source” — whether Islamic State in Syria or elsewhere.
Cameron laments the “poisonous radical narrative that is turning so many young minds,” and says, “We have to combat it with everything we have.”
He says this terrorism is “not in the name of Islam. Islam is a religion of peace.” The killers, rather, “do it in the name of a twisted, perverted ideology.”
