UN Security Council Condemns Church Bombings in Egypt

United Nations Security Council

The United Nation Security Council condemns the two bombings that took place on Sunday and calls the attacks “heinous” and “cowardly.”

A statement by the council urged all member states to cooperate with the Egyptian government in bringing to justice the perpetrators of the attacks, which were claimed by Islamic State (IS) group.

“They expressed their deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims and to the government of Egypt and they wished a speedy and full recovery to those who were injured,” the statement declared.

“The members of the Security Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security,” the statement added.

U.S. President Donald Trump has condemned Egypt Church bombings, reiterating confidence in Al-Sisi to handle situation ‘properly’.

Pope Francis expressed his deep condolences to Pope Tawadros II, the Coptic church and all of the Egyptian nation.

Also, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has sent a letter to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi offering condolences regarding the two terror bombing attacks in Alexandria and Tanta.

The two blasts in St Mark’s Cathedral in Alexandria and St. George’s church in Tanta killed 44 and injured more than 100 in one of the worst attacks.
