Singapore strongly condemns attack

Chinese police and paramilitary patrol the streets after the attack at the main train station in Kunming, Yunnan Province, on March 3, 2014. Knife-wielding assailants left at least 29 people dead and more than 130 wounded in an unprecedented attack at a Chinese train station, with state media blaming separatists from Xinjiang.

SINGAPORE has strongly condemned Saturday's violent attacks at the Kunming train station in Yunnan province.

"Such attacks on innocent civilians cannot be condoned or justified under any circumstances," a Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman said on Monday, in response to queries.

Singapore's Consulate-General in Guangzhou is in touch with Singaporeans in Kunming and there have been no reports of affected Singaporeans thus far.
