Attack on South Africa Mosque Condemned Attack on South Africa Mosque Condemned

Iran has condemned a deadly attack on a mosque in South Africa, calling on the international community to step up their efforts to curb extremism and terrorism.  Attackers entered a mosque in Verulam—a town on the outskirts of Durban—after midday prayers on Thursday, killed one man by slitting his throat, critically injured two other worshippers and set the place on fire before fleeing, AP reported.
"The move was in line with efforts to cause insecurity and incite religious conflict and sedition," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said in a statement carried by ISNA on Friday. He underlined the need for all nations to maintain their vigilance and "seriously" commit to fighting fanaticism.
