(Seychelles News Agency) - The Seychelles' President expressed condolences on Thursday following a terror attack in central London at the very heart of Britain and its Government, claiming lives and injuring many others.
In his message to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, President Danny Faure said that the Government of Seychelles unreservedly condemns acts of violence aimed at instilling fear and terror in the lives of innocent people and also disrupts the stability of the country.
"Seychelles stands in solidarity with the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in this difficult period. Our thoughts are with all those affected by this vicious act of violence," said President Faure.
According to a BBC article, “The attack unfolded at about 14.40 GMT on Wednesday when a single attacker drove a grey Hyundai i40 along a pavement over Westminster Bridge, near the Houses of Parliament in central London, killing three people and injuring many more.”
President Faure in his message commended the effective manner in which the police force and the emergency response agencies dealt with the incident, maintaining calm amidst the chaos and urgency imposed by the callous attack.
"It is our sincere hope that the perpetrators of this act may soon be identified and be brought to justice," said the President.
According to an article in the Telegraph, "The Islamic State terror group has claimed the British born attacker was one of its "soldiers", in a statement released through IS's Aamaq news agency."
