He said the attack was a "stark reminder of the threat terrorism poses to the world and the duty it imposes on us all to help combat this scourge."

At least five people including the attacker were killed and more than 40 injured in the attack outside parliament when a man mowed down pedestrians with a car and stabbed a police officer on Wednesday, 22 March 2017.

Nana Addo in a tweet to commiserate with Britain said "I join the rest of the world in condemning the London terror attack, and sympathize with the families of the dead and wounded."

However, world leaders unanimously condemned the attack in the heart of London by a man who was shot dead by armed police, with many saying they stand with Britain.

Chancellor Angela Merkel said Germany stood "firmly and resolutely alongside Britons in the struggle against all forms of terrorism" while President Frank-Walter Steinmeier said "in these grave moments, we Germans feel very close to the British people." .

President Francois Hollande sent a message of "solidarity" and "support to the British people", saying France could identify with their pain after the attack, in which three French high school students were also wounded. "France, which has been hit so hard in recent times, knows what the British people are suffering today," he said.
