Ed Miliband Tribute to MEP Candidate Del Singh

The Leader of the Labour Party Ed Miliband paid tribute to MEP candidate Del Singh who was killed in a suicide bombing in Kabul yesterday.

Ed Miliband said:

“My thoughts - and the thoughts of the whole Labour Party - are with the family and friends of Del Singh who was killed in yesterday’s tragic suicide bomb in Kabul.

“People everywhere will be appalled and shocked by this barbarous act of terror deliberately targeting members of the international community living and working in Kabul in the service of the Afghan people.

“Del spent over ten years carrying out vital work on development projects in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Sudan, Sierra Leone and other countries.

“He dedicated his life to working with people across the world who needed his support.”
