Zusatzinformationen

We condemn this despicable attack against worshippers at prayer in the strongest possible terms. There can be no justification for murdering innocent people in order to sow hatred and strife. All those in positions of responsibility in the region must help to ensure that this aim does not succeed.

Once again, this attack shows that terrorism does not distinguish between religions – it poses an equal threat to us all. We must continue to stand up together against it.
