The Multifaith Advisory Group on Egypt

12 April 2017

On behalf of Victoria's faith communities, we the members of the Multifaith Advisory Group (MAG), join together to express our abhorrence and dismay at the terrible tragedy that has unfolded in Egypt on Palm Sunday.

We condemn the act of violence which was committed at two Coptic Orthodox Churches at the hands of terrorists, which resulted in the loss of innocent lives. We express our sorrow and most heartfelt prayers for all of the victims, their families and the Egyptian people.
