Nov 24, Colombo: The Government of Sri Lanka in the strongest terms condemned Friday's terrorist attack on worshippers at a mosque in the Sinai region of Egypt and urged the international community to join hands to combat terrorism.
“Attacking those at prayer is an act of inexplicable brutality,” a Foreign Affairs Ministry statement said.
“The Government and people of Sri Lanka offer deepest condolences to the families of the victims, and wish those who are injured, a speedy recovery.”
The bomb and gun attack by militants on a mosque in Egypt's North Sinai province on Friday killed 235 people and injured at least 100 more.
“While expressing solidarity with the Government of Egypt at this time of national mourning, the Government of Sri Lanka urges the international community to join hands to find effective ways and means to combat terrorism in all its forms and manifestations,” the government statement said.
