India condemns Giza terrorist attack

War Conflict


India on Saturday condemned the "cowardly" terrorist attack on the tourist bus near Giza Pyramids in Egypt.

Extending condolences to the family of the deceased and wishing speedy recovery for those wounded in the incident, the Ministry of External Affairs in a statement said, "We stand with the Government and people of Egypt in their fight against terrorism."

As many as four people including three Vietnamese tourists and an Egyptian tour guide lost their lives in a roadside bombing that targeted a tourist bus in Cairo on Friday.

The blasts which took place in the Haram district of Giza, famous for the Egyptian pyramids, also injured 11 people.

No group or individual has claimed the responsibility for the attack as yet.
