Egypt condemns the terrorist attack that took place Saturday outside an education centre in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

According to Afghani officials, 24 people were killed and 75 injured in the suicide bombing outside the Kawsar-e Danish centre.

The Islamic State group (IS) claims responsibility for the attack, while a Taliban spokesman has denied the group carried out the bombing.

“Egypt expresses its sincere condolences, as a government and people, to the government and people of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the victims’ families, and wishes speedy recovery for the injured,” the statement read.

The ministry also reiterated Egypt’s rejection to all forms of terrorism, violence, and extremism and voiced solidarity with Afghanistan "in this painful incident."
