Statement Attributable to the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General on Egypt

The Secretary-General condemns today’s terrorist attacks in Greater Cairo, which reportedly killed at least six people and resulted in a large number of casualties.  No cause can justify such acts of terrorism.  He conveys his condolences to the families of the victims as well as to the Government and people of Egypt and calls for the perpetrators to be brought to justice.
