STATEMENT

Statement by the spokesperson on the beheading of Bedouins in Egypt

"The beheading of eight Bedouins by terrorists in the Northern Sinai region of Egypt is a demonstration of their denial to dignity and human life.


Our thoughts are with the families of the victims and the people of Egypt.


The EU stands by Egypt and all countries exposed to terrorism and is determined to work with its regional and international partners to tackle this common challenge that endangers lives and threatens  global stability."
