William Hague 'utterly condemns' attacks in Iraq

I utterly condemn the bomb attacks that have taken place across Iraq over the past few days. I offer my deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their lives.

My thoughts are with them and with the many who have been injured at this terrible time.

Coming at the start of the holy month of Ramadan, a time of peaceful reflection and prayer, these attacks demonstrate an appalling disregard for human life.

We will continue to support the government of Iraq in its efforts to defeat terrorism, and to provide security for all Iraqis.

– William Hague, Foreign Secretary
