Bahrain condemns mosque blast in Saudi Arabia

MANAMA, Jan 29 (KUNA) — Bahrain has strongly condemned the “terrorist” attack that targeted a mosque in Al-Ahsa governorate in eastern Saudi Arabia, which killed and wounded a number of innocent people, the Bahraini foreign ministry said.
The Kingdom extends its condolences and sympathy to the families of the victims and wishes speedy recovery to the wounded in this despicable crime which is against the religion of Islam and contrary to all moral and human values, the ministry said in a statement, according to Bahrain News Agency (BNA).
Manama also valued Riyadh’s efforts to solve problems and crises of Arab and Islamic countries, and its keenness to reinforce security, stability, and prosperity for its people, the statement said, adding that such terrorist acts will not succeed in shaking civil peace or igniting sedition among the one Saudi people.
Bahrain reiterated its solidarity with Saudi Arabia, and support of all measures Riyadh takes to bolster security and stability in its territories.
It also reiterated its firm stand in denouncing terrorism in all its forms and manifestations regardless of the motives or justifications, vowing to support the international community to root out this dangerous phenomenon that jeopardizes people’s peace worldwide.
At least two people were killed and seven others injured when a suicide bomber attacked a mosque in Saudi Arabia’s eastern governorate of Al-Ahsa, the Saudi Interior Ministry announced earlier. (end)
