Some of the cars that were driving about earlier either came to a stop or crawled to safety.

Judging by the timestamp, the attack seemed to have taken place on Tuesday (1 Mar) at about 8.02am, which would have been 2.02pm Singapore time.

10 killed & 35 injured in attack

According to BBC, 2 other buildings were also struck in the city centre — an opera house and a concert hall.

Footage of the aftermath reportedly showed buildings with their windows blown out and wreckage strewn all over the streets.

The government building which had a golden facade seemed to have lost its glimmer after the bombing.

Paramedics were present at the scene, moving rubbles from the corridors of the building, and carrying stretchers outside.

Citing Ukrainian authorities, BBC reported that at least 10 individuals were killed and 35 others injured.

Reminder of why we should avoid armed conflict

The daily footage of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine is a constant reminder of how devastating armed conflicts are and the reason we ought to avoid them at all costs.

Our condolences go out to the families of those who have lost their lives in this terrible attack.

We hope talks between both parties will bear fruit soon and that a ceasefire will eventually ensue.
