STATEMENT

Statement by the spokesperson on the attack in Luxor, Egypt

This morning five people, including two policemen, were hurt in an attack at the historic site of Karnak, in Luxor. 

This kind of violence targeting security and police, but also civilians and tourism, aims at undermining Egypt's stability and economic development. 

We must stand united in our common fight against terrorism. 

The EU will keep supporting Egypt's efforts to tackle violent extremism and prevent new attacks. We extend our sympathies to those wounded.
