Egypt has ‘strongly condemned’ the bombing of a mosque in the Afghani capital Kabul which left several people killed and injured.

In an official statement on Thursday, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry stressed its ‘full rejection of such terrorist acts’, affirming it support to Afghanistan against all forms of terrorism, violence and extremism.

It also extended its condolences to the families of the victims and wished the injured a speedy recovery, the statement read.

Tuesday’s bomb attack on the mosque, carried out by a suicide bomber near a high-security diplomatic district in the capital, killed two people, including the prayer leader, and injured eight others.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility on Thursday for the attack, describing the targeted prayer leader as “an apostate and evil propagating loyalty to the apostate Afghan government.”
