United Nations chief strongly condemns terrorist attacks in London

"We are working with our inter-agency partners and foreign counterparts to gain further insight into reported attacks against civilians on London Bridge and in the surrounding area", DHS said, in a statement.

At least seven people were killed and 48 others were injured in attacks late Saturday when a van mowed down pedestrians on London Bridge and attackers stabbed victims at nearby Borough Market.

Minister of State for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani said the attacks carried out by "evil groups" are a crime against humanity, noting that such attacks reveal the monstrous ways of criminal groups that aim to make countries unsafe and unstable. "All Americans stand in solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom".

The Singapore High Commission in London has reached out to Singaporeans who are e-registered in London, MFA added.

The State Department and the Department of Homeland Security are closely monitoring the incidents in London, Fox News confirms.

There have been no reports of Singaporeans directly affected or injured in the attacks, the ministry said.

The MFA release has also advised Singaporeans in the United Kingdom to keep in touch with their families and friends to let them know they are safe.
