Acknowledging London 'terror'

Reuters1Media Blog points out that Iran acknowledged “terror” in London even as Reuters' coverage of the attacks did not. This was the official Iranian response to the rush hour bombings:

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hamidreza Asefi, here Thursday condemned terrorist attacks on London's transport network.

According to Foreign Ministry's Department of Information and Press, Asefi expressed disapproval of terror attacks on London which killed and injured a number of people.

He condoled the next-of-kin of those killed and injured, denouncing resort to terror to reach aims as "inappropriate method."

See here for why Reuters indulges in word games to avoid using the T-word.
