Culture minister Abdelwahed El-Nabawy issued a statement mourning the death of Attorney General Hisham Barakat, denouncing the bomb attack that killed him in his motorcade.

“The Egyptian judiciary system is a pillar for Egyptians, and any targeted attempts at weakening it only makes us stronger and binds us closer together around this pillar in the face of terrorism,” Nabawy said in an official statement as reported by Al-Ahram Arabic news website.

Nabawy added that the ministry of culture is cooperating with other ministries and organisations including religious ones, mapping out plans and projects to "combat extremism through spreading a culture of peace, tolerance and coexistence."

“Egypt will remain a citadel for culture and moderate thinking with its creativity and thinkers that has pioneered the battle against extremism throughout the years.”
