Egypt strongly condemned Saturday a parcel bomb attack in France’s Lyon yesterday evening which injured 13 people and which is being investigated by counter-terrorist prosecutors، the foreign ministry said in a statement.
Egypt also stressed its full support of the French government and people in combating such “savage acts،” which target the innocent، the statement added.
A parcel bomb exploded in France’s third biggest city on Friday evening; among those who received light injuries was an eight-year-old girl.
Police say that the suspect was about 30 and was driving a black motorbike. While France has been hit with multiple attacks since 2015، this is the first parcel bomb attack since 2007.
