CAIRO - 30 December 2017: Al Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed el Tayyeb offered condolences on Saturday to Pope Tawadros II of Alexandria and Patriarch of Saint Mark’s Diocese over the victims of a terrorist attack on Mar Mina Church in Helwan.

In a phone conversation with Pope Tawadros, the Grand Imam stressed that such cowardly terrorist attack is a heinous crime whose perpetrators have no religious or human values, according to a statement issued by Al Azahar.

Egypt's national fabric has always proved strong in the face of vandalism, el Tayyeb stated.

"Let's protect our homeland and maintain its unity together", he added.
