KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia has strongly condemned the bomb attacks at a peaceful rally in Ankara, Turkey.
In a Facebook post on Sunday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said he was saddened by the loss of lives and that it is always important to respect the rights of others to peacefully assemble within the confines of the law.
“No one should resort to violence just because you do not share the same views. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those affected,” he added.
According to news reports, some 97 people were killed in Saturday’s twin bomb attacks in the Turkish capital.
