Archbishop offers prayers in aftermath of Moscow Airport bombing
Tuesday 25th January 2011The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, has written to Patriarch Kyrill of Moscow, offering prayers in the aftermath of the Moscow Airport bombing
"News reached us last night of the latest terrorist attack in Moscow, and I write to assure you and all your people of our prayers for those injured and killed and our deep sorrow for this new trauma inflicted on the Russian people. We shall be praying too for yourself and for all others among the clergy of the Orthodox Church who will be involved in ministering to those who have suffered.
Alas, we know from experience in London something of what these atrocities feel like, and there will be very many here who will want to join me in expressing our sympathy and our condemnation of this indiscriminate violence."
