Muslim groups condemn Sharm al-Sheikh bombings

The Jeddah-based Islamic Jurisprudence Council and the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO), both affiliates of the Makkah-based Muslim World League (MWL), condemned the Sharm al-Sheikh bombings. A statement issued by the Islamic Jurisprudence Council said such criminal acts run counter to human and religious values, and underscored the importance of international cooperation to fight such vicious acts.

IIRO condemned the multiple bomb attacks which took place in Sharm al-Sheikh on early Saturday. In a press statement released in Jeddah Saturday, the IIRO branded the blasts as criminal acts that should be condemned by all parties.
