Egypt said it supports efforts by the government of Kenya to combat terrorism, sending condolences to the African country after a bombing killed five soldiers on Wednesday.

The foreign ministry said in a statement that Egypt "stands with the government and the people of Kenya in the face of terrorism."

It reiterated Egypt's determination "to support brotherly African countries in their efforts to combat and eradicate terrorism and achieve security, stability and development in the countries of the continent."

Five Kenyan soldiers were killed and 10 wounded on Wednesday when their car ran over a homemade bomb in northern Kenya's coastal Lamu Country.
