Kuwait's Cabinet deplores string of terrorist attacks

(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) KUWAIT, Sept 18 (KUNA) -- The Kuwaiti Cabinet on Monday condemned a spate of "terrorist" attacks that took place in various parts of the world, all of which it said run counter to humanitarian and religious values.

Scores of Egyptian policemen were left dead or injured in an attack on a convoy in the restive Sinai Peninsula, which the Kuwaiti Cabinet deplored and underscored its support of measures taken by Egypt to uphold its security and stability.

It denounced in equal measure an incident in London on September 15, where an improvised bomb went off on the London subway during rush hour, killing tens of people and wounding a dozen others.

Similarly, the Kuwaiti executive body spoke out against coordinated attacks in southern Iraq recently, which collectively claimed more than 80 lives.

Meanwhile, the Kuwaiti Cabinet sent well wishes to new Singaporean president Halimah Yacob, the first woman to hold the ceremonial position in the history of the city-state. (end) fs.nam
