Saudi Arabia "strongly condemns" the attack on Thursday at a church in Nice, southern France, the Kingdom's foreign ministry said in a statement.


"The Kingdom categorically rejects such extremist acts, which contravene all religions," it said, while stressing "the importance of avoiding all practices which generate hatred, violence and extremism."


A knife-wielding attacker killed three people at the church.


France is still reeling from the killing by a man of Chechen origin of a schoolteacher in a Paris suburb earlier this month.
