British Ambassador to Israel Simon McDonald, along with Ramiro Cibrian, who heads the Delegation of the European Commission to the State of Israel, and Austrian Ambassador to Israel Kurt Hengl, laid a wreath Thursday morning at the scene of Wednesday's suicide bombing in Hadera on behalf of the European Union. The United Kingdom, as Presidency of the European Union, has strongly condemned the attack as a "cowardly, criminal attack". British Foreign Office Minister for the Middle East, Dr Kim Howells, said Wednesday that "the suicide bombing in the Israeli coastal city of Hadera is a cowardly, criminal attack aimed at innocent civilians ... our sympathies and thoughts are with the families of those killed and injured. While saying that "it is essential that the Palestinian Authority should do far more to prevent attacks such as these," Howells also urged that Israel use "restraint" in "responding to this cowardly attack."
