Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr condemned on Sunday 30/12/2012 the attack that targeted the Egyptian Coptic Orthodox church in Libya's city of Misrata, leaving two Egyptian nationals dead and three others injured.
Amr expressed his condolences to the victims' families. He asserted that Egypt will investigate in the incident and will bring the defendants to justice.
Egyptian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Amr Roshdi said that Egypt's Consul in Tripoli Tareq Dahroug went earlier to Misrata where he inspected the scene and is holding meetings with investigation and security authorities there.
Meantime, Egypt's embassy urged Libyan interior and foreign ministries to protect church buildings.
