Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras tweeted his “shock at the inconceivable tragedy” and stated Greece’s “solidarity on the side of the Egyptian people.”

Opposition New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said that after the latest “tragedy” everyone must join forces in the war against terrorism.

Parliament Speaker Nikos Voutsis expressed his “abhorrence at this barbarous act” in a letter of condolence to his Egyptian counterpart.
