San Francisco — Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement after a terror attack on a Sufi mosque in Egypt killed at least 235 people:

“The news of the terror attack on the Sufi mosque in Egypt is deeply saddening.  Murdering hundreds of worshippers at prayer is a vile act of brutality.  We are horrified by these terrorists’ assault on people simply gathering in community to practice their faith in peace. 

“Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families who have lost loved ones and all those wounded.  We must be strong and smart to defeat terror, and Americans stand in solidarity with the Egyptian people in this terrible time.”
