Saudi Arabia condemned on Monday the terrorist attack that took place in central Cairo.

An official source at the Foreign Ministry expressed the Kingdom’s solidarity with and support to Egypt in its fight against all forms of terrorism.

He offered Riyadh’s condolences to the relatives of the victims and the government and people of Egypt.

At Least 20 people were killed and 47 injured by a huge explosion caused by a speeding car in central Cairo overnight in what President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi described as a “terrorist incident”.
