Egypt: Al-Azhar Urges Halting Foreign Military Assault in Mali

Al-Azhar yesterday condemned the French military intervention in the sisterly state of Mali branding it as illegitimate.

In a statement released yesterday, Al-Azhar said that the foolish conduct by the militants in the north of Mali has triggered off the French intervention that led to the killing of victims.

Al-Azhar further urged halting the foreign military assault as well as the foolish conducts that are contradictory to the orthodox Islamic teachings.
