Egypt strongly condemned Friday a terrorist attack in Germany's Munich that left at least nine dead, a foreign affairs ministry statement read.

Nine people were killed and 16 wounded in a shooting rampage by a teenage gunman at a Munich shopping centre Friday.

Investigators found the body of the suspected shooter, who appears to have acted alone and then killed himself.

The motives behind the attack are still unknown.

The statement reiterated that Egypt strongly rejects any kind of terrorising of citizens or endangering citizens' lives.

Cairo also called for unifying efforts to combat terrorism and uproot it.

The Egyptian people and government stand side by side with Germany during these difficult times, the statement read.
