Brussels' bombing: statement from the World Methodist Council

"The World Methodist Council strongly condemned the cowardly attacks at Zaventem Airport and Maelbeek station in Brussels that claimed the lives of more than 30 people and left scores injured. The impact of these attacks will be felt in every country around the world given that Brussels is the seat of European Union.

"On Tuesday 22 March, World Methodist Council General Secretary Ivan Abrahams said, 'the thoughts and prayers of members of the World Methodist Council are with the families and love ones of those killed and injured in these despicable acts of terrorism on innocent people'. He expressed solidarity and support for the people of Belgium and appealed to all victims of terror not to respond with violence and hate but to work towards global peace."
