Egypt's Grand Mufti Shawki Allam strongly condemned a series of coordinated bombings witnessed across Sri Lanka on Sunday morning, striking hotels and churches during Easter Mass, killing at least 160 people and injuring 400 others.

In a statement, Allam said that "targeting places of worship, shedding the blood of innocent and defenseless people and spreading hatred and fomenting sedition among people of the same nation are abhorrent acts that are prohibited by all religions".

He called on Sri Lankan nationals to cooperate with security bodies for revealing those behind these terrorist attacks.

Allam offered condolences to the families of the victims, wishing the injured speedy recovery.
