Three severely wounded people have received surgeries while nine others are recovering well. Vietnamese Ambassador to Egypt Tran Thanh Cong visited the victims and worked with local officials to seek solutions to the case.

Three Vietnamese tourists were killed and 12 others injured when their bus was hit by a bomb installed along a road near the world-famous Giza pyramids on Friday (local time). At a working session with the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Egyptian Ambassador to Vietnam said Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli had visited the Vietnamese victims. Egyptian authorities have also launched an investigation into the bomb attack and will promptly grant visas to relatives of the victims and representatives of relevant travel companies to come to Egypt.

Vietnamese nationwide have strongly condemned the bomb attack. Vu Minh Ly of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment told VOV: "We’re very angry and strongly denounce evil acts that killed and injured innocent people. I hope the Egyptian side would investigate properly the case and punish those behind the attack. I pray for peace for the whole world."

"The bomb attack is a crime that should be strongly denounced. I hope the murderers will be brought to justice. I really hope countries worldwide would stay united in the fight against terrorism," said To Ngoc Son of Hanoi's Phuc Tho district. 

Tran Thi Ut, who works in the tourism industry in the southern province of Tien Giang, said: "I’m very sorry for the great loss, especially those who died in the terrorist attack. I’d like to extend my sincere condolences to the families of the victims."

In a letter on behalf of Pope Francis, Vatican Prime Minister Pietro Parolin said the Pope was very upset upon receiving the news, adding that the Pope strongly condemned the attack and prayed for the victims and their families.

India’s Ministry of External Affairs on Saturday said India stands with the government and people of Egypt in their fight against terrorism.

Algerian Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Abdelaziz Benali Cherif on Sunday offered condolences and tribute to the victims and voiced Algeria’s solidarity with the Egyptian and Vietnamese government in the fight against terrorism.
