Egypt's Al-Azhar – considered the world’s highest seat of Sunni Islamic learning – strongly condemned the terrorist attack that occurred on the London Underground Friday leaving a number of injuried, Al-Arabic Ahram website reported Saturday.
A home-made bomb on a packed rush-hour commuter train engulfed a carriage in flames and injured 29, but apparently failed to fully explode, in Britain's fifth major terrorism incident this year, according to AP.

In its statement, Al-Azhar underlined the importance of international will to fight terrorist organisations and criminal outlooks.
Al-Azhar has expressed its solidarity with both the government and the people of Britain, wishing recovery to those who were injured in the attack.
The Islamic State (IS) militant group claimed responsibility for the bomb attack.
