Suicide Attack at a Kuwaiti Mosque: BD PM Expresses Shock at the Loss of Lives. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has expressed deep shock at the loss of lives in suicide bomber attack at a Kuwaiti mosque. The full text of the message sent to her Kuwaiti counterpart Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al Sabah yesterday is given below :
”It is a matter of deep sorrow and concern that 27 people were killed and 277 wounded when a suicide bomber attacked a mosque in Kuwait City on 26 June. It is extremely shocking that the bomber snuck into the Imam Al-Sadiq Mosque near Kuwait’s famous Al-Sawaber district in Sharq at the end of the busy Jumma prayer during the Holy month of Ramadan, when a suicide bomber blew himself up inside the mosque. I express my deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathies to Your Highness and through you to the family members of the victims as well as all the brotherly people of Kuwait for this heinous and cowardly incident.
The people of Bangladesh join me in expressing their solidarity in your fight against terrorism in the country and beyond. I take this opportunity to reiterate that Bangladesh denounces terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and reaffirm our Government’s commitment to work together with Kuwait and the world community to fight against this menace.
I wish you good health, long life and happiness, and the brotherly people of the State of Kuwait continued peace, progress and prosperity. ”
