The Sri Lankan government vehemently condemned the gruesome killing of twenty one Coptic Christian Egyptians by the terrorist group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Libya last Sunday (15).

“The barbaric manner in which these killings were carried out has outraged the collective conscience of the world, and is a crime against humanity. Sri Lanka firmly believes that the international community should take concerted and decisive action to eradicate the growing menace of terrorism, which is a threat to human civilization, in all its forms and manifestations,” a statement issued by the foreign ministry said.

The Government and people of Sri Lanka convey their profound condolences to the Government and the people of Egypt, as well as to the bereaved families on this terrible national tragedy, it added.

    You must be a re-rehabilitated LTTE cadre

    TJ Friday, 20 February 2015 11:59 AM

    Very late reaction from our side.

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 20 February 2015 12:05 PM

    Lets practice what we preach. Only few years ago, we have been suspected of mass killing of our own minority citizens and the leader of such a dastardly crime still is popular amongst the population. We need to change.

    Bubble Banda Friday, 20 February 2015 12:13 PM

    It is very pathetic, ISIS seems to be the worst terrorist than LTTE.

    Desmond Jeromme Friday, 20 February 2015 12:14 PM

    if you send MR over there - he will wipe out ISIS.

    Horri Jimonis Friday, 20 February 2015 12:18 PM

    To see, MR is better than RW. Though he is a rogue, he is first for sending messages.

    ibadun Friday, 20 February 2015 12:18 PM

    PeaceLover Friday, 20 February 2015 03:51 PM

    Vijith Pieterz Friday, 20 February 2015 01:04 PM

    why should Middle eastern countries expect U.N or U.S army to fight ISISand then blame US for civilian casualties.all the middle eastern countries should unite and raise army to fight to finish ISIS. African countries should raise army to eliminate Boko haram. these people does not belongs to human race they are bunch of Murders and rapists using religion and God as excuse to kill innocent people. . via DM Android App

    Riz Friday, 20 February 2015 07:32 PM
