Local Statements

We wish to express our support and solidarity to the countries whose representatives and citizens were attending the ceremony that was the target this morning of an attack by improvised explosive device at the Jeddah cemetery. We join these countries in condemning such cowardly attack against innocent people attending a peaceful commemoration. We wish a prompt recovery to those who were injured. We thank the Saudi emergency services for their intervention at the scene and look forward to a prompt and thorough investigation of the incident and to the prosecution of its perpetrators.
