WASHINGTON—Representative Eliot L. Engel, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, today made the following statement:

“I strongly condemn today’s terrorist attack in London, and my heart goes out to those affected by this senseless violence. I hope all responsible are brought swiftly to justice.

“The United Kingdom is America’s closest ally and strongest partner in the fight against violent extremism.  Our countries have felt the pain of bloodshed at terrorists’ hands too often, and our shared resolve to defeat this enemy has made the special relationship even stronger. The United States stands with the British people always, and especially in this difficult time.”
