Flags at half-mast for terror victims

Union Jack flags were flown at half-mast on government buildings throughout Cayman Monday in memory of British victims of Friday’s terror attack on a beach in Tunisia.  

According to a statement released by the Cayman Islands government on Monday morning, the flag of the United Kingdom was lowered “as a show of solidarity with the British victims of the terrorist attack at Port El Kantaoui, in Tunisia.”  

The Union Jack at No. 10 Downing Street in London was also flown at half-mast Monday. British Prime Minister David Cameron’s office said 18 Britons have been confirmed dead, and the total is expected to rise to around 30. Thirty-eight people were killed in the attack. 

Mr. Cameron also announced that Britain would hold a national minute of silence at noon on Friday, a week after the attack.
