High Representative for the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations
On the Terrorist attack in Minya, Egypt
New York – 26 May, 2017
The High Representative for the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) strongly condemns the heinous terrorist attack today on a bus traveling to a monastery in Minya, Egypt killing at least 28 people including children, according the latest accounts.
The terrorist attack in Egypt and few days ago in Manchester are stark reminders that the ugly face of terrorism knows no borders. It is also a reminder that we should all stand up together in our fight against terrorism in all its forms.
On behalf of UNAOC, The High Representative extends his deepest condolences to the families of the victims and to the people and Government of Egypt.
