Zurich, Dec 12 (BNS): The European Union on Monday condemned the bombing at Cairo's Coptic cathedral that left several people killed.

"Today's terrorist bombing at Cairo's Coptic cathedral during Sunday mass has exacted a terrible toll of civilian deaths and injuries. Sadly it is not the first terrorist attack in recent days, following two other bombings in different parts of the country.

Our thoughts now are with the victims and their families," the European Union said in  a statement.

"The EU expresses its condolences to the bereaved, and stands side by side with Egypt in the efforts to defeat terrorism in their country," it said.

The blast killed at least 25 people killed.
