Na­jib: We must not give in to ter­ror­ism

New Straits Times - - News -

KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Razak ex­pressed shock and is sad­dened over the at­tack at Houses of Par­lia­ment in Westminster on Wednesday.

The at­tack by an un­known per­pe­tra­tor left four peo­ple dead and another 30 peo­ple in­jured. The lo­cal police have con­firmed the in­ci­dent and are treat­ing it as a ter­ror­ist in­ci­dent.

The at­tacker mowed pedes­tri­ans as he drove across Westminster Bridge, hit­ting and in­jur­ing mem­bers of the public.

Three off-duty police of­fi­cers were also among those in­jured at the bridge.

The car came to stop af­ter it crashed into the rail­ings near the Houses of Par­lia­ment.

The at­tacker then tried to en­ter the build­ing, stab­bing a police of­fi­cer in the process and at­tempted to stab another police of­fi­cer as the sus­pect tried to en­ter the build­ing.

Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May was at the Par­lia­ment build­ing as the Bri­tish Par­lia­ment was in ses­sion. She was not harmed.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the in­no­cents af­fected,” Na­jib said in a post­ing on Twit­ter.

“Malaysia stands with the United King­dom. Must never sur­ren­der to ter­ror­ism,” he said.
