CAIRO, Egypt- Egypt condemned the suicide bombing attack, against a Christian church in Pakistan, that killed at least eight people and injured 44 others.
“The Egyptian government and people stand in solidarity with the Pakistani government and people, against terrorism,” the Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in a statement, urging for collaborative international efforts, to eradicate terrorism and extremism.
Four suicide bombers attacked, on Sunday, a densely-packed church in Pakistan’s south-western town of Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan.
One of the terrorists was shot dead by the church guards, before detonating his explosives vest, according to Pakistani authorities.
Local affiliates of the terror group Daesh, claimed responsibility for the Pakistani church attack.
Daesh has also claimed responsibility for most of the deadly terror attacks in Egypt, over the past few years.
