Egyptian Opposition: Execution of Croatian hostage strongly condemned

 ISTANBUL – The Egyptian opposition strongly condemns the execution of Croatian hostage Tomislav Salopek who was kidnapped July 22 in Cairo, and reportedly beheaded by militants affiliated with ISIS in the Sinai Peninsula. Our deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Salopek and the people of Croatia. 

We hold the current regime of Abdel Fatah el-Sisi responsible for failing to curb the rise of extremism in the country. His brutal actions against civilians in Sinai and elsewhere – including the bulldozing and shelling of entire communities – have only served to raise chaos further.

Amr Darrag, a senior minister in the former Morsi government said: "It is a tragedy that reports of a death of a Croatian national at the hands of ISIS in Egypt now seem very likely to be true. I strongly condemn such act that has no place in our country. People of all nationalities must be able to live and work freely in our country."

"The international community must stand united in resisting the scourge of ISIS in Egypt. This starts with holding the Sisi regime to account for installing an autocratic regime that has exacerbated the problem of extremism, not halted it. It is clear that Egypt is losing the battle against the cancer of extremism"
