'Stand together' against terror says First Minister

Carwyn Jones made his statement during a meeting of the Assembly

The First Minister has told AMs that the people of Wales 'stand shoulder-to-shoulder in solidarity with the French people in this time of mourning.'

Carwyn Jones made his comments in a statement at the start of the National Assembly's plenary session.

He also urged people to be vigilant about suspicious activity.

The United Kingdom has itself suffered from terrorism. We know for a fact that a number of other attacks have been foiled at the planning stage. Arrests have been made here in Wales in the past and we know that individuals have travelled from here to Syria. We cannot be complacent about our own back yard. The public should remain vigilant and should not hesitate to contact the police if they have suspicious or unusual activity to report. Llywydd, I would also like to place on record my support and solidarity for the Muslim community here in Wales, the overwhelming majority of whom share our revulsion at the terrorism carried out in the name of a corrupted view of their religion. Muslims make a powerful and positive contribution to Welsh society and we will all stand together in opposing extremism and aggression in our community.

– Carwyn Jones AM, First Minister

The Premier League will issue new security guidance to football clubs this week following the Paris terror attacks.

France's national stadium was targeted during a friendly between France and Germany. Four days on, the same French players who were at the Stade de France when suicide bombers blew themselves up outside will take to the field.

Extra security measures will be in place at that game tonight when England take on France at Wembley stadium.

Premier League officials say they will provide a full briefing to all member clubs on Thursday and will issue a public statement on the situation.

We are actively engaged with our security advisers and the appropriate authorities, including the Home Office and senior representatives from the police, to assess current security guidance to Premier League clubs.

There is a club meeting later this week where a full security briefing will be given. Following that, further guidance will be issued to the clubs as well as a public statement so fans are fully aware of what to expect when arriving at stadiums.
