Fa­ther’s prayers for son’s vic­tims

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

THE fa­ther of knife­man Mahdi Mo­hamud wrote a let­ter to the trial judge - say­ing his loved ones were left ‘very deeply sad­dened’ over the at­tacks.

He said he felt a ‘ter­ri­ble sense of guilt’ that he had let his son down be­cause he didn’t do more to help him ac­cess the cor­rect treat­ment.

The fa­ther also sent his fam­ily’s thoughts and prayers to the in­jured - and praised the re­sponse of the emer­gency ser­vices.

“From when we first heard about this hor­rific in­ci­dent, our prayers have and con­tinue to be with those se­ri­ously in­jured, their fam­i­lies and friends,” he wrote.

“We are also eter­nally grate­ful for the swift re­sponse from emer­gency ser­vices and the com­fort given to those af­fected Man­cu­ni­ans and cit­i­zens.”

Mo­hamud lived with his par­ents and sib­lings in Cheetham Hill but the fam­ily have now moved out of the city.
