Leader of Hounslow Council, Cllr Steve Curran has expressed the borough’s solidarity with Pakistan and Australia following the terror attacks.

Nearly 150 people, nearly all of them children, were killed in Pakistan during a Taliban attack on a military school in Peshawar (Dec 16). The previous day, two civilians and the gunman were killed when police stormed a cafe in Sydney, Australia, which was under siege.

Cllr Steve Curran said: 'As a borough with a significant population from the Commonwealth, I would like to send on behalf of Hounslow our heartfelt condolences to the people of Pakistan and Australia and any of the victims’ relatives living in the borough.

'We stand shoulder to shoulder with them at this tragic time.
Today, Taliban militants attacked a school in Peshawar, Pakistan, killing 132 children and nine adults, according to officials in the country. Many more people are reported to have been injured in a series of explosions and subsequent shootings at the institution."

It is believed there are several thousand people with links to Pakistan across the borough, while there several hundred residents with links to Australia.
