The Arab League has strongly condemned the "criminal attack" on Egypt's Prosecutor General Hisham Barakat. 

"Terrorist attacks and groups like IS want to create chaos in all the Arab countries and create subversive ideas between the Arab people. Their main goal is to destabilise the Arab countries," said Arab League Secretary-General Nabil El-Araby during an emergency meeting on Monday.

In a statement, the Arab League stressed the importance of national security and cooperation among all Arab countries to counter terrorism. 

The Arab League emphasised that it would provide all forms of support to Egypt in its war against terrorism.

It stated that all Arab countries must inspect closely any funding of terrorist groups by private individuals.

Immediate action must be taken regionally and internationally to fight terrorist groups that will cause serious damage to the future of the region, said Tarek Adel, Egypt’s ambassador to the League, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported.

Adel condemned recent terrorist deadly attacks in Kuwait and Tunisia, saying "Islam denounces any violence."

In March, Egypt submitted a draft resolution tto the league to establish a joint Arab military force to "fight terrorism."
