Available Expert - Dozens killed in Egypt mosque attack

Friday, November 24, 2017

Queen’s University terrorism and radicalization expert Wagdy Loza is available to comment on a bomb and gun attack on a mosque in Egypt that has killed 184 people – a figure that continues to rise.

“This incident and other similar incidents of brutality around the world demonstrate the importance of combating the ideologies that promote Jihad,” says Dr. Loza. “The terrorists who do these acts believe strongly in the ideologies that have been instilled in them, so military and police alone will not be a solution.”
