SHELBY STATEMENT ON LONDON BOMBINGS

LONDON – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL), while traveling in London on matters related to the Senate Banking Committee, made the following statement regarding today’s bombings in London:

“I want to express my sincere condolences to the victims and families of this terrible tragedy. As Americans, we stand united with the British people in the struggle against terrorism as they hunt down those responsible and bring them to justice. These malicious attacks only strengthen our resolve to defeat those who wish to harm the United States and our allies.”

“Today’s attacks also serve as a stark reminder that terrorists can hit anywhere and at anytime, until we completely destroy their networks. By working to spread democracy across the globe, the United States and other nations are crippling these networks. We must remain committed to this fight and committed to winning the War on Terror.”
