Singapore is appalled by and condemns the attack on innocent worshippers who were leaving nearby mosques after their night prayers in Finsbury Park, London on 19 June 2017. That this heinous attack had taken place during the Holy Month of Ramadan is even more disturbing. Such acts remind us that we must remain vigilant, and not allow mistrust and enmity to be sowed in society. We offer our heartfelt condolences to the family of the victim, and we hope that the injured will make a quick recovery.

The Singapore High Commission is working closely with the London authorities to monitor the situation. The Singapore High Commission in London is reaching out to Singaporeans who are e-registered in London. Thus far, there have been no reports of Singaporeans directly affected by or injured in the incident.

Singaporeans in the United Kingdom are advised to keep in touch with their family and friends so that they know you are safe. Those who are in need of urgent consular assistance should contact the Singapore High Commission in London or MFA Duty Office at:
