(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) today issued the following statement on the bombings of Coptic Christians in Egypt:

“On Palm Sunday, when Christians cry ‘Hosanna to the King’ around the world, we watch with grief as our brothers and sisters in the Coptic community of Egypt suffer senseless violence.  Innocent persons must never be subjected to such assaults on account of their faith.  We stand in solidarity with the Egyptian people, Christian and Muslim, in their shock and sorrow.”

Fortenberry serves on the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations. He is Co-Chair of the Religious Minorities in the Middle East Caucus.
