Minister Charles Flanagan, Security, Press Releases, Middle East and North Africa, 2015


The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Mr Charlie Flanagan T.D., has condemned the terrorist attack in Cairo which killed Egyptian Prosecutor General Hisham Barakat.


“I condemn the terrorist attack which killed Prosecutor General Barakat and wounded a number of others, including bystanders and persons travelling with Mr Barakat. The use of violence and terror is unacceptable and represents an attack on Egypt’s constitution and its judicial system.
