Singapore Sad News

(Photo from The Straits Times, Singapore ) Let's mourn for the Singaporean woman who is 28 years old Ms Lo Hoei Yen, was killed on Wednesday, in the terrorist attack in the financial city of Mumbai, India. Her body was found on the 19th floor of Oberoi Hotel, Mumbai, which is a popular hotel for Westerners and foreign expatriates...
As according to the news, She had gone to Mumbai to attend a business seminar and was staying at Oberoi Hotel.  During the attack, she is one of the hostage. An Indian news channel had reported that the terrorists had held the woman at gunpoint and ordered her to tell the Singapore Government to tell the Mumbai authorities to refrain from acting against them, or she would lose her life. Unfortunately, she was killed during this chaos and her family could only identify her body in the hotel room. She is the first Singaporean to die in a terrorist attack.
Her body back home from Mumbai on this morning.
I like her happy smile shown in the photo. She is so young. It is a very sad news.
Let’s just pray for her and the other hostages that are being captivated. STOP terrorism!
