The Opposition People’s National Party (PNP) is calling on the government to facilitate speedy communication between London and Kingston to ascertain the safety of Jamaicans in the aftermath of another suspected terror attack.

In a release last evening, Opposition Spokesman on Foreign Affairs Dr Morais Guy said the United Kingdom is home to a large number of Jamaicans and such an attack would naturally spark some level of anxiety among friends and relatives.

"We, therefore, call on the government to immediately open all official channels of communications so that we are able to quickly ascertain information on any Jamaican who might be affected by this recent incident," Guy said.

The PNP said it was saddened by the news of yet another terror attack in London.

"The report that seven persons have been confirmed dead is heart-breaking," the PNP spokesman said. "Violence and attacks of this nature on humanity anywhere is unacceptable and must be condemned"

The Opposition party expressed support for the citizens of the United Kingdom and denounced what it describes as "these cowardly attacks".
