Najib also conveyed his condolences and prayers to the families and friends of those affected.

"At this time of heartbreak, Malaysia stands united with Britain.

"We must be firm, determined and ready to confront terror swiftly and decisively wherever and whenever it manifests itself. We must never surrender," he said in a post on Facebook and Twitter.
