S'pore must be vigilant against extremism: DPM Teo

SINGAPORE: Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs, Teo Chee Hean, has described Friday's shooting and bomb attacks in Norway as "vicious". He said there is "almost a model" for people who are of that mind to follow. Speaking on the sidelines of a community event on Sunday, he also urged Singaporeans to be vigilant against extremism. "We should all speak out and stand up against extremist violence wherever it comes from," said Mr Teo. "When you put these two things together, extremist violence and the means and methods for doing it, then you can have tragedies as happened in Oslo and other places in the world." "For Singaporeans, we have to do two things. One, we have to be vigilant against the means and the methods but we also have to be vigilant against extremism and that I think is the more fundamental important thing," added Mr Teo.
