We are saddened by reports that Father Francois Mourad was murdered at a convent in Al Ghassaniyeh in Syria. The UK utterly condemns such a callous and brutal act. There are millions of Syrians who want a peaceful and democratic future. Such a barbaric act does not represent the principle and actions of the Syrian opposition. That is why we continue to support the Syrian National Coalition who are fully committed to a political solution and guarantee the rights of all Syria’s communities.
