Congresswoman Waters’ Statement on the Bombing in Manchester, England

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee, released the following statement today in response to the terrorist attack at a concert in Manchester, England:

“I am deeply saddened by the horrific bombing in Manchester that killed at least 22 people including an 8-year-old girl. This callous attack was obviously designed to kill large numbers of innocent people while they were enjoying a concert with their families and friends. My heart goes out to all of the victims and their families as they recover from this senseless act of violence.

“Let us also remember the many innocent people around the world whose lives have been destroyed by violent terrorists. Such ruthless individuals use horrific and unconscionable methods to incite fear in peaceful communities. It is my sincere hope that the international community can work together to oppose acts of terrorism, wherever they may occur.

“America stands in solidarity with the people of Manchester, and we will keep them in our thoughts and prayers.”
