'Need the wall': Trump condemns Sinai mosque attack

Egypt Sinai: Bomb and gun attack on mosque

The White House also said in a statement that "the global community must continue to strengthen its efforts to defeat terrorist groups that threaten the United States and our partners and we must collectively discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence".

Since coming to office in January, Trump has taken a strong stance against extremists and terrorism. We have to get TOUGHER AND SMARTER than ever before, and we will. Need the WALL, need the BAN!

There have been a wave of attacks on the country's Coptic Christian minority, but attacks on mosques are rare in Egypt.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, in a statement following the attack in Egypt, called on the global community to strengthen its efforts to defeat terrorist groups.

Head of the European Union Delegation to Egypt, Ambassador Ivan Surkos, condemned the attack, describing it as a barbaric terrorist act against innocent civilians.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

In July this year, at least 23 soldiers were killed when suicide auto bombs hit two military checkpoints in the Sinai, in an attack claimed by Islamic State.

Unidentified terrorists arrived in four off-road vehicles at the Al Rawdah Mosque near El Arish where supporters of Egyptian security forces were praying, according to eyewitnesses and a security source, as well as Egypt's official Middle East News Agency (MENA).

The public prosecutors' office said in a statement 235 people had been killed and 109 more wounded.

Ahmed Al-Tayeb, a top Sunni imam, told a nationwide television audience that the Al-Azhar Mosque supports the country's leadership and the military against the terrorism groups, which he said have a false understanding of Islam.

Egypt's reaction: The President vowed to restore security and avenge those killed. After at least two explosions, the attackers waited outside the mosque and gunned down worshipers as they tried to flee to safety.
