Singapore condemns the vicious terrorist attacks in London last Saturday, Singapore's Foreign Ministry said in a statement yesterday.

"There can be no justification for such attacks against innocent civilians. We express our deepest condolences to the families of the victims, and wish the injured a speedy recovery. We stand in solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom," the statement said.

It added that the Singapore High Commission in London has reached out to Singaporeans who have registered. The High Commission is also working closely with the London authorities to monitor the situation. Thus far, there have been no reports of Singaporeans who were directly affected by or injured in the incidents.

Singaporeans in the United Kingdom are advised to keep in touch with their family and friends. Those in need of urgent consular assistance should contact the Singapore High Commission at:
