PM condemns attack in Jakarta

 |May 25, 2017

Prime Minister Najib Razak today condemned the bomb attack at a bus terminal in Kampung Melayu, East Jakarta, last night.

“I am disgusted by last night’s attack in Jakarta. Malaysians stand with the Indonesian people at this time,” he said via his Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Coming so soon after the appalling Manchester bombing, Najib said this new outrage shows that terrorism has no borders and knows no race or creed.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of those affected. Even as the terrorists try to intimidate us, we must not fear them. Each atrocity must harden our resolve. Now more than ever is the time to be united, even as violent extremism seeks to divide us,” he added.

Three people were killed in bomb blasts and 10 were also reported injured in the incident which saw two blasts occurring within five minutes, suspected to be suicide bombings at about 9pm local time (10pm Malaysian time), yesterday. – Bernama
