SINGAPORE - Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean has responded to an attack in central London in the British House of Parliament.

Singapore needs "to be alert to prevent an attack", he wrote in a Facebook post around midnight on Wednesday (March 22), shortly after news of the attack broke.

Mr Teo, who is also the Coordinating Minister for National Security, said that he was "saddened by the loss of life and injuries".

"We need to be alert to prevent an attack; ready to respond to keep ourselves and others safe if we are caught up in one; remain resilient to carry on life normally; and stay united to counter those who advocate extremism and violence," he said.
