Statement on the Charlie Hebdo massacre

We are appalled by this barbaric and heinous attack on the offices of the satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo in Paris. It was not just an evil massacre of innocent civilians going about their day’s work, but a vicious assault on the freedom of the press, one of the fundamental tenets of Western democracy. We extend our deepest sympathies to the families, friends and colleagues of those so brutally murdered and our wishes for a speedy recovery for all those wounded, and hope that the perpetrators and all who assisted them are swiftly brought to justice. This attack once again reinforces the dangers posed to the entire international community by the dark forces of Islamist extremism in all its guises, and the need to act with resolve to counter them wherever they lurk.
