Egypt condemned on Tuesday "in the strongest terms" a bombing that took place on Monday southeast of Baghdad, which left at least 17 people dead and over two dozens injured.

Egypt expressed condolences for the victims' families and the people and the government of Iraq, stressing its full solidarity with Baghdad in the fight against "abhorrent terrorism," Egypt's foreign ministry said in a statement.

Cairo will push ahead with its efforts and coordination with other countries to "develop a comprehensive international strategy to eliminate terrorism in all its forms, dry up its sources of funding and supply, and combat the extremist ideology," the statement added.

On Monday, two attackers shot several civilians in Baghdad's Nahrawan area before one blew himself up and the other was killed by security forces, the Iraqi interior ministry said.
