MUSLIM groups from Ipswich today condemned the attacks in London.
The Bangladeshi Support Centre, in Tower Street, said they were a law-abiding community who wanted to promote peace.
A spokesman from the centre said: "We are shocked and horrified by the tragic events that took place in London yesterday.
"The Bangladeshi community in Ipswich and Suffolk condemn those who perpetrated the horrific attacks and stand united against those who carried out this inhumane attack on innocent people.
"The Bangladeshi community in Suffolk is a small, peaceful and law-abiding community and we will continue to work together to promote peace, understanding and harmony across the county."
It is thought yesterday's attacks will be talked about at prayers being held at the Ipswich and Suffolk Bangladeshi Muslim Mosque, in Bond Street, Ipswich, at lunchtime today.
