SINGAPORE - Singapore has strongly condemned the attacks in London and said no Singaporean has been injured.

"Singapore strongly condemns the vicious terrorist attack in Westminster, London... that led to the death and injury of innocent persons, including a police officer who was killed in the line of duty," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said in a statement on Thursday (March 23).

"We express our deepest condolences to the bereaved families, and wish the injured a speedy recovery. The people of Singapore stand in solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom at this difficult time."

MFA and the Singapore High Commission in London have reached out to Singaporeans who are e-registered in the British capital.

"Thus far, there have been no reports of Singaporeans directly affected by or injured in the incident. The Singapore High Commission will continue to work with the London Metropolitan Police and relevant authorities to monitor the situation closely," the MFA statement said.

The ministry has advised Singaporeans in London to keep in touch with their families and friends. Those who require urgent consular assistance in London should contact the Singapore High Commission or MFA Duty Office on:
