UN Chief Strongly Condemns London Terrorist Attacks

By Prudence Arobani

New York – UN Secretary-General António Guterres strongly condemned Saturday night’s terrorist attacks in London and expressed solidarity with the people and Government of the United Kingdom in the combat against terrorism and violent extremism.

“The Secretary-General expresses his solidarity with the people and the Government of the United Kingdom as they fight terrorism and violent extremism,” a statement issued by a UN spokesperson, Stéphane Dujarric, said on Sunday.

Guterres denounced the deadly incidents as “unjustifiable violence” and also expressed his condolences to the families of the victims and wished the injured a swift recovery.

This is a struggle in many parts of the globe that compels the international community to join up efforts to bring to justice those who use such inhuman tactics

“It is also a struggle for protecting and promoting the fundamental values, rights and principles that terrorists so fervently seek to undermine,” Guterres said.

Authorities said seven people were killed and dozens more injured when a van sped across London Bridge on Saturday and rammed into numerous pedestrians.

After the van came to a halt, the attackers reportedly stabbed several people in the capital’s Borough Market, a crowded weekend gathering spot.

The three assailants were reportedly shot by the police.

This is the third deadly incident in the UK that authorities have attributed to terrorists.

The latest terror attacks followed a deadly attack near the Houses of Parliament in March, and nearly two weeks after a suicide bombing outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

“This is a struggle in many parts of the globe that compels the international community to join up efforts to bring to justice those who use such inhuman tactics

“It is also a struggle for protecting and promoting the fundamental values, rights and principles that terrorists so fervently seek to undermine,” Guterres said.
