WASHINGTON—Representative Eliot L. Engel, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, this evening made the following statement:

"I'm shocked by the apparent terrorist attack this evening in England and I strongly condemn this violence.  As we await details, the United States should stand ready to assist our ally to track down the perpetrators and bring them to justice.  In this difficult time, our countries will remain united, especially when it comes to combating terrorism in all its forms.

"My heart goes out to all affected by this attack, and I wish a speedy recovery to the survivors."
