King Charles III condemns ‘dreadful’ bomb attack in Peshawar

After the deadliest bomb attack on a mosque in Peshawar, Britain’s King Charles III sent a message of condolences to Pakistan’s President.

On Monday, a suicide attack in the capital city of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa killed at least 100 people and hurt more than 200 others.

In a message to President Dr. Arif Alvi, the new king of Britain said: “Monday’s terrible bombing in Peshawar shocked both my wife and me very much. No matter where they happen, these senseless acts of violence are a barbaric attack on our shared humanity and our shared values of understanding and compassion.”

Added King Charles: “The fact that the people who were killed were in a place of worship during afternoon prayers makes it even worse. We are very sad for everyone who has lost a loved one or been hurt so badly. We’ll always remember our trip to Pakistan in 2006 with great fondness, and we’ll be thinking of and praying for the people of Pakistan as they mourn their loved ones.”

In this sad time, the British royal family has shown support for the government and people of Pakistan. They shared King Charles’ message on their official social media accounts and on the royal website.
