Responding to the terror attack at the Manchester Arena last night, Kerry Moscogiuri, Director of Campaigns at Amnesty International UK said:
“Amnesty International condemns in the strongest terms this cowardly act that has taken the lives of so many innocent people.
“The thoughts of everyone at Amnesty are with all those affected by this horrific attack on children, young people and parents enjoying a night out at a concert.
“The response to this kind of attack must always be more love, just like we’ve seen from the people of Manchester coming together to offer lifts, tea and places to stay to concert-goers and those looking for their loved ones.
“Politicians and the media must ensure their language and actions do not stoke hatred and division, and use all their influence to stress that we have more in common than that which divides us.”
