Kofi Annan
United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan today condemned the bomb attacks that took place Thursday in Taba, Egypt, in which more than 30 people were killed and another 120 injured.

“The Secretary-General wishes to emphasize yet again that no cause can justify acts of terror, perpetrated against civilians,” said a statement issued a spokesman for Mr. Annan.

“He denounces the attack against a site that has long been a tangible example of peaceful coexistence in the Middle East.”

The statement said the Secretary-General “hopes that the perpetrators will be speedily brought to justice. He extends his condolences to the families of the victims, as well as their Governments, and sends his best wishes for a speedy recovery to all those injured.”
