SINGAPORE: Singapore condemns the terrorist attack in France, and stands in solidarity with the French, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said.
On Friday (Mar 23), four people were killed in Trebes, France, by a gunman claiming allegiance to the Islamic State militant group. Several other people were also shot and wounded in the country’s first major militant attack since October.
“Singapore condemns the terrorist attack in Trebes, France on Mar 23 that killed and injured innocent people, including a French police officer. We stand in solidarity with the people and government of France, and wish the injured a swift recovery,” an MFA spokesperson said in a statement on Saturday.
There have been no reports of Singaporeans injured or directly affected by the attack so far, he said.
“Singaporeans in France are advised to heed the advice of the local authorities and keep in touch with their family and friends so that they know you are safe.”
