He pointed out that Egypt faces the threat of terrorism alone and commits a lot of sacrifices to defend the values of justice and human right to live a safe life, so the international community should provide full unconditional support to Egypt and should not allow supporters of terrorism to hide under any umbrella.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York and former candidate for Pope of Vatican; Bishop David Metropolitan of New York; Rabi Joseph Potasnik; Alonso Bernard; representatives of the New York Police; Ambassador Majid Abdel Fattah, representative of the Arab League to United Nations, and others have been keen to express their condolences.
