Egypt – Attack against a Coptic church in Cairo - Statement by Jean-Marc Ayrault (December 11, 2016)

I was appalled to learn of the heinous attack targeted against St. Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in Cairo this morning during Sunday mass, which left a large number of people dead.

I extend my condolences to their families and wish the injured a speedy recovery. France expresses its full solidarity with Egypt in this terrible ordeal, as well as in the fight against terrorism.
