UK Foreign Secretary condemns murders of Coptic Christians

 

LONDON, United-Kingdom, February 16, 2015/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has condemned today’s murder of Coptic Christians in Libya.

 

He said:

“I strongly condemn the murders of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians by ISIL-affiliated extremists in Libya. My thoughts are with the families of those killed.

“Such barbaric acts strengthen our determination to work with our partners to counter the expanding terrorist threat to Libya and the region. Acts of terrorism should not be allowed to undermine Libya’s political transition. We remain fully supportive of the UN’s efforts to build a national unity government for Libya and to bring a political solution to the ongoing security crisis. Those who support terrorists can have no part in this process.”
