ECRL Moderator Rev. Dr. Thomas Wipf and General Secretary Jehangir Sarosh comment on the recent attacks in Egypt and Turkey, killing and injuring many:

“It is with great sadness that we announce more horrific attacks;

Egypt has declared three days of mourning following the bombing of a chapel adjacent to Egypt’s main Coptic Christian cathedral. We condemn this horrific attack in Egypt as we do all the other senseless attacks around the world in the name of dangerous ideologies and hate. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the 25 worshippers killed.

Two explosions also hit in Istanbul, killing at least 38 people and injuring many others. These attacks targeted Police officers. We condemn these acts of violence against human lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those killed and injured.”
