Egypt Blasts Aim to Incite Religious Sedition

Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said terrorism poses a threat to the followers of all divine religions, stressing that acts of terror are aimed at inciting religious sedition.
In a message to the speaker of Egypt’s House of Representatives, Ali Abdel Aal Sayyed Ahmed, on Monday, Larijani condemned the terrorist bomb explosions at two Coptic churches in different cities of northern Egypt, which killed more than 40 Christians.
“Terrorism is a threat to the followers of all divine religions and humans, and is in contravention of all divine values and teachings,” the top Iranian lawmaker was quoted as saying by Press TV.
He stressed the importance of boosting interaction and cooperation among countries to fight this ominous phenomenon, emphasizing that the “Iranian nation is itself a victim of indiscriminate terrorism and stands by the Egyptian people in the battle against terrorism.”
Sunday’s first bombing at the St. George’s Church in the Nile Delta city of Tanta, north of the capital Cairo, killed 28 people.
The second bombing struck outside St. Mark’s Church in Alexandria, the historic seat of Christendom in Egypt, killing 17 people after a terrorist bomber was prevented from entering the building.
Later on Sunday, the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group released a statement claiming both church bombings.
