PM denounces London Bridge terror attack

DHAKA Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who is now on the

way to Spain on a three-day visit there to join COP25, today condemned in

strongest terms the Friday's London Bridge attack.

In a written message to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, she

expressed profound shock to the family members killed in the London attack.

She also conveyed sympathy to the injured persons and prayed for their

early recovery.

Reaffirming her government stance against the terrorism, the premier said

Bangladesh has adopted zero tolerance policy against the terrorism and

militancy. The militants and terrorists have no religion.

Sheikh Hasina reiterated her steadfastness to work in unison with the

international community including the British government to exterminate

militancy and terrorism.

Two people were killed on Friday when a knife attacker went on the rampage

on London Bridge. Police later shot dead the attacker who was wearing a fake

suicide vest.
