Attack in Egypt: 'We must stand firm against the threat of terrorism'

Following the attack on a mosque in Egypt's North Sinai province, reportedly killing at least 155 people, PACE President Stella Kyriakides made the following statement:

"I'm appalled by the loss of life of so many innocent people following the bomb attack targeting a mosque in Egypt. On behalf of the Assembly, meeting currently at the level of the Standing Committee in Copenhagen, I extend my condolences to the families of the victims and the people of Egypt.

We must stand firm against the threat of terrorism, which knows no borders, and increase our efforts to tackle this senseless violence."
