The European Left condemns the bloodiest terrorist crime in recent Egyptian history, when terrorists bombed and attacked hundreds of praying Moslems in a Mosque in Bir al-Abd in northern Sinai during the Friday prayer, on 24 November 2017. More than 305 have been killed, among them 27 children, and over a hundred wounded.

The Working Group on Latin America of the Party of the European Left (EL) expresses its absolute rejection to the new aggression of the European Union (EU) against the Venezuelan people.
