Egypt condemns London mosque attack
Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in statement that it strongly condemned "the trampling of Muslim worshipers" in northern London on Monday morning.
A van driven by a 48-year-old white man ploughed into a group of Muslim worshippers leaving prayers in the Finsbury Park Mosque, killing one people and injuring 10 others.
"Egypt expresses its solidarity with the British government and people as well as the families of the victims during this ordeal," the ministry said in a statement.
It renewed Egypt's rejection to all forms of terrorism, the intimidation of innocent people, as well as discrimination against people on the bases of race, gender or creed.
At the same time, the statement warned people against Islamophobia, while calling on the international community "to unite so as to fight terrorism."
It remained unknown if the Monday incident, which apparently targeted Muslims, was in retaliation for the recent terror attacks on Westminster Bridge and London Bridge, in which Muslim extremists used vehicles and knives as weapons to attack innocent people. Enditem
