Pope Francis has added his voice to those condemning the car bombing of an Italian Consulate in Egypt, following what he called a “wave of other attacks that already claimed the lives of numerous persons.”

In a telegram to the Egyptian president Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi , Francis has appealed to “political and religious players at all levels to unite their efforts to combat with ever more determination the plague of terrorism and to promote harmony and solidarity.”

The blast early Saturday morning killed one person and wounded ten.

It heavily damaged a section of the building and ruptured water lines, flooding the area.
