Pubblichiamo di seguito il telegramma di cordoglio per le vittime dell’attentato terroristico avvenuto ieri a Minya (Egitto) inviato dal Cardinale Segretario di Stato, Pietro Parolin, a nome del Santo Padre:


His Excellency Abdel Fattah Al Sisi

President of the Arab Republic of Egypt


Deeply saddened to learn of the barbaric attack in central Egypt and of the tragic loss of life and injury caused by this senseless act of hatred, Pope Francis expresses his heartfelt solidarity with all those affected by this violent outrage. Mindful in a particular way of those children who have lost their lives, His Holiness commends the souls of the deceased to the mercy of the Almighty. He assures their grieving families and all who have been injured of his ardent prayers, and he pledges his continued intercession for peace and reconciliation throughout the nation.

Cardinal Pietro Parolin

Secretary of State
