Iran Deplores Terrorist Attacks in France, Afghanistan, Egypt.

Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iranian foreign ministry condemned the recent terrorist attacks in France, Afghanistan and Egypt, calling for global efforts to launch collective campaign against root causes of terrorism.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi deplored the terrorist attacks in France, Afghanistan and Egypt over the past two days, expressing sympathy with the bereaved families of the victims.

"The only way to uproot this global threat is to confront the sources and main ideological, financial and promotional roots of terrorism," he said on Saturday.

Qassemi said the geographical dispersion of such terrorist attacks shows that "terrorism is a global problem and has a global solution".

At least five people, including the gunman, were killed after a gunman claiming allegiance to the ISIL terrorist group fired shots and took hostages in Southern France on Friday.

The incidents occurred at a supermarket in Trebes and the nearby town of Carcassonne.

Also, an explosion in Egypt's coastal city of Alexandria on Saturday killed two people, including a policeman, the Egyptian Interior Ministry said.

The explosion occurred in the district of Roshdi when the head of the Alexandria Security Directorate was passing by. No group has claimed responsibility for the blast yet.

Meanwhile, an explosion killed and injured scores of people in the city of Lashkar Gah in Afghanistan's restive South, officials said on Friday.

"A car bomb blast happened at the entrance gate to the sports stadium in the first Police District of Lashkar Gah city," Helmand province's police spokesman Salam Afghan said.

Helmand governor spokesman Omar Zwak said the blast killed at least 14 people and injured 47 others.
