Margaret Hassan's life and the memory of her work will remain in our hearts for generations to come
Our thoughts and prayers are with Margaret Hassan's family, friends and relatives at this difficult time.
We hope this doesn't stop the many committed aid workers in Iraq from completing their valuable and vital
work to help and assist vulnerable people.
"I think a defenceless and such a loving woman was murdered in this way just show the depths of evil murderers.
I don't think there are words left in my vocabulary to describe Margaret Hassan's murderers adequately. They are
the enemies of humanity, and an insult to the religion in the name of which they claim to be acting"
Said Jabbar Hasan today, the direct of Iraqi Community association in London. "It is vile to kill, someone
who dedicated her life to helping others - These people are not human and they certainly are not Muslims."
Terrorism has sunk to new depths in Iraq, murdering women and children in cold blood. These men have deleted
themselves from the human race. With their repeated slaughters of innocent, their suicide activities against
civilian and government targets, their assassinations of doctors, engineers and educators, and their
un-Islamic practice of ceremonial human sacrifice, terrorism cannot win, and certainly they cannot
stop the will and hope of Iraqi people towards peace and democracy.
It is a dreadful waste - to lose people who gave so much to make the world a better place. Margaret
was a dedicated aid worker. Her distressed face will never be forgotten from the minds of millions of Iraqis.
Margaret Hassan's life and the memory of her work will remain in our hearts for generations to come.
Rest in peace Margaret.
