Muslim world reacts after deadly Medina attack
July 6, Riyadh: The Muslim around the world has united to condemn a deadly attack at one of Islam's holiest sites - the Prophet's Mosque in the
Saudi city of Medina. At least four security guards have been killed in the attack on Monday.
Setting aside differences, world leaders, politicians, groups and activists expressed their outrage on Tuesday.
The blast followed two more attacks, in Jeddah and Qatif, also on Monday.
A spokesman for Saudi Arabia's interior ministry described the triple bombings as "despicable acts that did not respect the sanctity of place, time and innocent people".
Javad Zarif, Iran's foreign minister, condemned the bombing in Medina and called for Muslim unity.
Pakistan's foreign ministry also condemned the attacks, while its army chief telephoned Saudi Defence Minister Prince Muhammad bin Salman to express his support.
