Minister Coveney condemns terrorist attack in Egypt


The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Simon Coveney T.D., has condemned the horrific terrorist attack which took place earlier today in Bir al-Abed in Egypt's North Sinai province.


“I offer the sympathies of the Irish people and the Government of Ireland to the families of those who lost their lives in today’s terrorist attack, to those who were injured, and to the Egyptian nation at this difficult time.


“I utterly condemn this heinous attack on people engaged in Friday prayers. The Egyptian people have long shown their resolve against hatred and intolerance”.
