British Victims Of Kabul Terror Attack: Foreign Secretary's Statement

Two British nationals and the child of another British national were killed in the Kabul terror attack on 26 August, the Foreign Secretary has said.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:
"I was deeply saddened to learn that two British nationals and the child of another British national were killed by yesterday’s terror attack, with two more injured.

"These were innocent people and it is a tragedy that as they sought to bring their loved ones to safety in the UK they were murdered by cowardly terrorists.

"Yesterday’s despicable attack underlines the dangers facing those in Afghanistan and reinforces why we are doing all we can to get people out. We are offering consular support to their families.

"We will not turn our backs on those who look to us in their hour of need, and we will never be cowed by terrorists."
