Greece offers Egypt condolences over terrorist attacks



Greece’s Foreign Ministry on Saturday expressed its abhorrence for the terror attack in Cairo and support for Egypt in a tweet posted on the Ministry's official Twitter account.

"We express our abhorrence for the murderous attack in #Cairo targeting innocent civilians & our full solidarity to the people of #Egypt & its government. Sincere condolences to the victims’ families & loved ones @MFAEgypt," the post said.

Following the attack on Friday, Deputy Foreign Minister for expatriate affairs Terence Quick contacted his Egyptian counterpart Nabila Makram to express his sorrow, as well as sending a message to Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry.

Egyptian authorities said that three Vietnamese tourists and their Egyptian guide were killed when a makeshift explosive device detonated as their tourist coach was passing by, near the pyramids of Giza.
