Security forces on Saturday killed 40 suspected terrorists in raids in Egypt in the aftermath of a deadly attack on Vietnamese tourists, the first in more than a year in a country that has made the fight against terrorism a priority absolute.

On Friday, three Vietnamese tourists were killed along with their Egyptian guide in the explosion of a home-made bomb as they boarded their bus near the Giza pyramids site on the southwestern outskirts of the Egyptian capital.

According to the prosecutor general, an investigation was opened into the attack, which also injured 11 tourists and the bus driver.

“Vietnam has strongly condemns the terrorist act that killed and wounded many innocent Vietnamese,” said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang, who calls on Egypt to “punish severely”.

Several foreign countries have expressed support for Egypt, including the United States, as well as the European Union. Pope Francis said he was “deeply saddened” and “confident that all will work to overcome violence with solidarity and peace,” according to a telegram from the Vatican.
