Egypt condemned Monday’s deadly mass shooting of Las Vegas which killed at least 59 people and injured hundreds of others on Sunday night during a music concert.
“Peace loving peoples must unite in facing powers of evil and enemies of life during critical times where innocent souls were lost,” the ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a condemning statement, asserting full support to the US.
Egypt’s religious figures also condemned the attack and offered condolences to the American people. Al-Azhar Grand Imam said terrorism has no religion.
Grand Mufti Shawky Allam said violence and terrorism were common threats to the world and should be faced by further cooperation, asserting that no religion allows such terrorizing of people.
This also came amid international solidarity with the victims and their families of the US deadliest shooting.
Police identified the shooter as Stephen Paddock who opened fire on security forces from inside his hotel room shot himself, according to CNN.
However, the motive of the attack hasn’t been determined, despite reports that the Islamic State group had claimed the attack.
