CAIRO: Sunni Islam’s leading seat of learning Al-Azhar on Friday condemned a deadly truck attack in Nice on France’s national holiday, urging unity to “rid the world” of “terrorism.”


“These vile terrorist attacks contradict Islamic teachings,” the Cairo-based institution said in a statement after Thursday evening’s attack, which killed at least 84 people and wounded scores more.

“Al-Azhar affirms the necessity of uniting efforts to defeat terrorism and rid the world of its evil.”
