The proliferation of terrorist operations reflects the authorities’ inability to take their anti-terrorism practices further than media statements and random security confrontations, a group of non-governmental organisations said.
In a joint statement released on Saturday, a group of 13 civil society organisations condemned the terrorist bombings and violent incidents which took place late last week. Four explosions were reported in Greater Cairo on Friday, leaving at least six killed. On Saturday, two more blasts were reported in Cairo and Suez, leaving none killed.
Interim President Adly Mansour condemned the attacks in a national address on Sunday afternoon. He said the state “will not hesitate to take exceptional measures if needs be” to fight the wave of terrorism.
