Mr Ellwood said:
I wholly condemn the sickening attack that killed Egyptian Public Prosecutor Hisham Barakat and injured a number of others in Cairo. I send my sincere condolences to the families of all the victims. The UK continues to stand with the Egyptian people in confronting the threat from terrorism and the extremist ideology that inspires it.
