Egypt condemns Kabul suicide bomb attack

Country calls for decisive internatio­nal action against funding, hosting ‘terror groups’


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.
