Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat expressed condolences on behalf of the capital to London's residents following a suspected terror attack that killed seven and wounded dozens more late on Saturday.

"Terror is terror - anywhere in the world - and the free world must come together to fight evil," he said in a statement addressed to his London counterpart, Sadiq Khan. "An attack in London is an attack against the values of freedom and democracy around the world."

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families at this time," he stated, adding that, "Jerusalem stands with London - today and always."
