Finsbury Park attack

As police search a house in Cardiff following the terrorist incident on Muslim worshippers near Finsbury Park, the Bishop of Monmouth, Richard Pain, whose diocese covers part of Cardiff, said:

“I am very saddened to hear of this terrorist attack.  Cardiff and Newport Areas are well known for enjoying good relationships amongst the different cultures and faiths and this attack does not represent the faith communities who work well together for the well being of all in South East Wales. Only last night, representatives of the Muslim communities attended a service at St Woolos Cathedral.   Our thoughts and prayers go to those affected by the attack and our resolve is to work for peace and mutual respect.”
