Lembit Öpik

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many United Kingdom nationals were killed in terrorist attacks between(a) 1 June 2002 and 28 February 2003 and (b) 1 March 2003 and 26 November; and if he will make statement. [140774]

Mr. MacShane

In the period from 1 June 2002 to 28 February 2003, 29 British nationals were victims of terrorism perpetrated by international terrorists: 28 British nationals in Bali and one British national in Riyadh. Between 1 March 2003 to 26 November 2003, 2 British nationals were killed in a bomb attack in Riyadh and 3 British nationals were killed in the bombing of the British Consulate General in Istanbul. These figures do not include British personnel killed in Iraq. We believe that international terrorists have been involved in some terrorist attacks in Iraq.
