A vigil of peace was organized in St Albans to commemorate the victims of recent terrorist attacks.



The Hertfordshire All Women's Trust and the Interfaith Women's Group of St Albans have organized the commemorative vigil for peace near the clock tower on the evening of May 11th.

People of different faiths – from Islam, Judaism and Christianity – prayed for all those involved in terrorist attacks around the world.

This includes the bombing of Manchester Arena during a concert of Ariana Grande in 2017, the shooting of a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, in March, and the bomb attacks on a hotel and church in Colombo, Sri Lanka, in April.

Passersby were also accompanied by curious passers-by who were coming out of bars, pubs and restaurants in St Albans at that time.

Syeda Momotaz Rahim, director of Hertfordshire All Women's Trust, said it was important to stay united.

"Personally, in my experience, people are losing their good neighborliness and there is a lot of concern about people from different backgrounds and from other groups.
