Silence For Wesh Tunisia Victim

A minute’s silence has been held across Wales to remember the 38 British people killed in Tunisia.

A week after the attack in the resort of Sousse, memorial services have been held in churches and town centres.

Hundreds gathered in the hometown of Welsh victim Trudy Jones.

The 51-year-old mum and grandmother’s friends and family cried and hugged as the Blackwood service came to an end.

Chris Evans, MP for Islwyn said her death has affected the whole community:

“Most people can’t understand what happened; they can’t get their heads around it.

“I think the outpouring of grief shows that it could have been any one of us.

“Everybody is thinking about the family and everybody is praying for them.

“It proves once again that in good times or in bad, that we look after our own, they are our own and we are here for them.”

Flags at Welsh Assembly Government buildings were flown at half-mast.

First Minister Carwyn Jones observed the minute’s silence:

“It’s difficult for people who’ve suffered and I think it’s important to show the families that we’re thinking of them.”

Holiday makers in Sousse also came together to remember the victims by lining the beach where the massacre took place last week.
