“My thoughts are with the Jewish community and all those affected by the appalling act in Texas. We condemn this act of terrorism and anti-semitism,” Liz Truss, the U.K.’s Foreign Secretary said in a statement. “We stand with US in defending the rights and freedoms of our citizens against those who spread hate.”

According to reports, Akram was making demands to free Aafia Siddiqui, a convicted terrorist being held at Federal Medical Center Carswell in Fort Worth.
