The recent Manchester terrorist attack at a pop music concert was a “brutal act of violence against children”, MLI Munk Senior Fellow Alex Wilner told CBC News Ottawa.

“It’s shocking, it’s horrific, it’s brutal, but it’s not surprising”, Wilner said. “There have been dozens of thwarted attacks in the UK and in Europe – attacks like these”.

The interview begins at around the 32:30 mark.

Wilner also spoke with the National Post, CFRA (Ottawa), Newstalk 1010 (Toronto), Global News Toronto and MAJIC 100 (Ottawa).

Christian Leuprecht, another MLI Munk Senior Fellow, discussed the attack with Tasha Kheiriddin of AM640 (Toronto) and on the Roy Green Show.
