Statement by Minister Flanagan on attacks on Coptic Churches in Egypt9/4/17
"I learned with deep sadness of two attacks today on Coptic Churches in northern Egypt, which have killed more than 20 people and injured dozens more. I offer my sincere condolences to those killed and injured and their loved ones.
"I condemn the attacks and those responsible. These attacks come just as the Church begins the Easter, a special time for the Coptic and other Christian churches.
"There can be no justification or purpose for such horrendous acts of violence."
