Statement of the High Representative and Vice President Federica Mogherini on the terrorist attacks in Northern Sinai, Egypt

Yesterday's terrorist attacks in the Northern Sinai region of Egypt have resulted in the death of over 29 people, the wounding of many and the destruction of state infrastructure.

These continued attacks undermine Egypt's stability and economic development. The fight against terrorism will remain EU's priority and, together with our partners, we need to jointly tackle this common threat.  

We wish to express our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and to the Government of Egypt.

The EU stands by Egypt in its efforts to address the multiple challenges the country is facing.
