The Mufti, Shaykh Abdul 'Azeez Aal Ash-Shaykh said:
'Verily the shedding of blood and the wrongful murder of innocent people is something not accepted by divine legislation or sound reason. Islam is not a religion [that condones] these bombings and it does not allow the targeting of the places of worship of the non-Muslims. And what happened [i.e. in Alexandria] is saddening and unfortunate.'
