One Minute Silence Held for British Citizens Killed in Tunisia Terror Attack That Left 38 Dead Including 30 Britons!
Yesterday was a solemn day in Britain as the citizens joined the Queen and Prime Minister David Cameron for a one minute silence tribute to the victims that lost their lives during the Tunisia beach resort massacre.
According to BBC News, a minute’s silence was reported to be held across the UK at midday to remember the 38 people – including 30 Britons – that were killed in the beach attack a week ago. Flags were flown at half-mast over Whitehall and Buckingham Palace, while play at Wimbledon was delayed.
Using the hashtag #TunisiaAttack or #oneminutesilence, people from around the world tweeted their support, heartfelt condolences and condemnations of the Tunisia attack.
The attack, which took place on Friday 26th of June, 2015 involved a gun man who killed at least 37 people and wounded 36 at the Tunisian resort of Sousse. Philip Hammond, British Foreign Secretary, on that day said at least five Britons were killed in the attack.
That same day in Kuwait, a suicide bomber killed at least 25 people, while a man with suspected ties to French Islamic radicals rammed a car into a gas factory in south-eastern France, triggering an explosion that injured two people. The severed head of a local businessman was left hanging at the factory’s entrance. Click here if you missed it!
May the souls of all those who died in this tragic incident rest in peace!
