- Story Text: Indonesian defence minister Ryamizard Ryacudu on Sunday (June 4) said he felt sorry for the attack in the London Bridge area.
He was speaking at a security forum in Singapore.
Attackers drove a van at high speed into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing people in the nearby Borough Market area of bars and restaurants on Saturday (June 4) in what British authorities described as terrorist incidents. There have been media reports of fatalities.
Authorities in Indonesia, the world's biggest Muslim-majority nation, were hit by deadly attacks in May and January last year, and are increasingly worried about a surge in radicalism, driven in part by a new generation of militants inspired by Islamic State.
