Jpost Reports

DUBAI – Saudi Arabia’s King Salman condemned the deadly gun attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida and urged measures to combat terrorism, state news agency SPA quoted the monarch as saying on Tuesday.

“We have learned with great sorrow the news of the armed terrorist attack in Florida which caused deaths and injuries. We condemn and denounce this criminal and disgraceful act, which is not approved by the heavenly religions, nor by international norms and conventions,” King Salman said.

“The people and government of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia … stress the importance of uniting the efforts of the international community to counter all acts of violence and terrorism.”

Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people in the gun attack, traveled to Saudi Arabia in 2011 and 2012 to perform the umrah pilgrimage to the holy Muslim city of Mecca, Interior Ministry security spokesman Major General Mansour Turki said on Monday.
