The King’s message following the bomb attack in Peshawar, Pakistan

2 February 2023

Dear Mr President,

My wife and I were profoundly shocked by the dreadful bomb attack in Peshawar on Monday.  Such acts of incomprehensible brutality, wherever they occur, are a barbaric assault on our shared humanity and our values of understanding and compassion. It is all the more horrific that the victims were in a place of worship during afternoon prayers. We feel most deeply for all those who have been so cruelly bereaved and injured. We recall our visit to Pakistan in 2006 with the greatest fondness, and will hold the people of Pakistan in our special thoughts and prayers as you mourn those you have lost. 

Charles R.
