His statements follow condemnation of the attacks by King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The king was praised for his “strong and firm” response to Friday’s terrorist attack by Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen, secretary-general of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

Dr. Al-Othaimeen said: “The words of King Salman come as support for the OIC, its committees, institutions and administrations, to control and combat Islamophobia.”
