Prince Harry Joins Prayers For London During Ramadan Dinner

Prince Harry honored the victims of this weekend’s terrorist attack in London during a visit to Singapore.

Harry broke the Ramadan fast with members of local Muslim-welfare organization Jamiyah Singapore on Sunday. Ahead of the meal, the group offered its prayers for those affected by Saturday’s attack, multiple British outlets reported. 

“Our thoughts go out to the families of the victims of the London terror attack last night,” said Muhammad Rafiuddin Ismail, the secretary general of Jamiyah Singapore, before the iftar meal, according to The Telegraph. “Let peace and harmony prevail in communities all over the world.”

Seven people were killed and dozens were injured when three suspected assailants attacked civilians in the center of London on Saturday. The suspects ran over pedestrians on London Bridge and went on a stabbing spree in a nearby market before being killed by police.

None of the victims in the attack have been identified so far.

This weekend’s terror attack come just two weeks after a suicide bomber set off explosives during a concert by Ariana Grande in Manchester. And in March, a man rammed pedestrians on Westminster Bridge with a rented car before attacking an officer guarding parliament.

Prince Harry is in Singapore to play in the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup, an annual fundraiser for his charity focused on helping vulnerable children and young people affected by HIV in southern Africa.

 

He’s scheduled to travel on to Australia to promote the 2018 Invictus Games in Sydney, a sporting event he founded to honor wounded, injured, and sick veterans.
