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

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.
