|Sri Lankan Cricket team attacked|

I woke up this morning to hear on the radio the terrible and tragic news about the absolutely reprehensible and unjustifiable attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore in Pakistan.
For many years now sporting teams have refused to travel to Pakistan because of security fears. The Sri Lankan Cricket Team took a brave and principled decision to tour Pakistan at short notice when the Indian cricket team pulled out of their tour following the Mumbai attacks.
The news is appalling and as the day goes on we can only hope and pray the casualties aren’t as bad as initially thought. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the policemen who have been killed.
