The Portuguese Government expresses its strongest repudiation of the attack on the Al-Rawdah mosque in Bir Al-Abed, northern Sinai, which claimed the life of hundreds of innocent people, who were in the mosque for Friday prayers.

This brutal attack shows once again the violence and cruelty in the actions of terrorist groups and reinforces the commitment of Portugal and the international community to eradicate all forms of terrorism.

In this moment of great pain, Portugal presents its condolences and expresses its solidarity with the countless grieving families, the Egyptian people and authorities of the Arab Republic of Egypt.
