Egypt con­demned on Sun­day the mil­i­tant at­tack on a polling cen­tre in the Afghan cap­i­tal Kabul, al­legedly car­ried out by the Is­lamic State (IS) group, which killed 31 and in­jured 54 oth­ers, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment by the Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs.

The state­ment as­serted that Egypt stands with the Afghan govern­ment and peo­ple in the “fight against ter­ror­ism,” send­ing the Egyp­tian govern­ment and peo­ple’s con­do­lences to vic­tims’ rel­a­tives and hop­ing for speedy re­cov­er­ies for those who were in­jured in the at­tack.

In ad­di­tion, the min­istry called upon the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity to take de­ci­sive ac­tion to stop the “fund­ing and host­ing of ter­ror groups.”

About 31 peo­ple were killed in an at­tack in Kabul, while more than 50 oth­ers were wounded, when a mil­i­tant wear­ing an ex­plo­sive belt at­tacked a voter reg­is­tra­tion sta­tion. IS claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for the at­tack.
