Egypt has condemned a parcel bomb attack in France’s Lyon on Friday which injured 13 people and which is being investigated by counter-terrorist prosecutors.
The Egyptian foreign ministry stressed its full support of the French government and people in combating such “savage acts,” which target the innocent, it said in a Friday statement.
A parcel bomb exploded in France’s third biggest city on Friday evening; among those who received light injuries was an eight-year-old girl.
Police say that the suspect was about 30 and was driving a black motorbike. While France has been hit with multiple attacks since 2015, this is the first parcel bomb attack since 2007.
