Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has expressed solidarity with the British government following a suicide bombing at a concert at the Manchester Arena in England on Monday.
Media reports indicate that 22 people were killed and 59 injured in the blast at the end of a concert by US singer Ariana Grande.
Skerrit said the attack was the action of cowards.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families and loved-ones in Manchester, England this evening as a result of the actions of cowards,” he said in a Facebook post. “My solidarity is with the British Government.
In a statement, British Prime Minister, Theresa May said it was “now beyond doubt that the people of Manchester and of this country have fallen victim to a callous terrorist attack” that targeted “defenceless young people”.
It is the worst terrorist attack in the UK since the 7 July bombings in 2005, in which 52 people were killed by four suicide bombers, the BBC said.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack but supporters of Islamic State have been celebrating it on social media.
