World Leaders Condemn Egypt Mosque Attacks, Calls For Collective Action Against Terrorism

Egypt Sinai: Bomb and gun attack on mosque

Militants attacked a crowded mosque during Friday prayers in the Sinai Peninsula, setting off explosives, spraying worshippers with gunfire and killing at least 235 people in the deadliest ever attack by Islamic extremists in Egypt.

The attackers used automatic weapons, said Diaa Rashwan, the chairman of the state information service. The affiliate also is believed to have been behind the 2016 downing of a Russian passenger jet that killed 226 people.

Al-Sisi said that the Friday's attack aimed to spread a seed of doubt among Egyptians about the capacity of the state, but affirmed that the armed forces and police will be responding to restore security in north Sinai.

"We stand with Egyptians in their war against terrorism and against anyone who tries to harm the Egyptian national security", Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said in a statement. "God bless the people of Egypt".

"Government of India strongly condemns the heinous act of terrorism that has claimed innocent lives in Bir-al-Abed, North Sinai in Egypt today", External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.

"The world can not tolerate terrorism, we must defeat them militarily and discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence!" the president said.

Prime Minister of Georgia, Giorgi Kvirikashvili: "Our most honest condolences to the families of victims, the Government and the people of Egypt and everyone affected by the heinous attack on the mosque in Sinai".

Italian President Sergio Mattarella sent a cable of condolences over the victims.

"Justice will be served against all those who participated, contributed, supported, funded, or instigated this cowardly attack", Sisi said in a statement. "This terrorist act will strengthen our resolve, steadfastness and will to stand up to, resist and battle against terrorism".

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

Three police officers, cited by the Associated Press, but wishing to remain anonymous, said that four men who had arrived in off-road vehicles opened fire on worshippers during the sermon.
