Kadyrov visited Egypt both as Mufti of Chechnya and the head of the republican administration. He paid his last visit to the country in September 2001. During that trip, he met with the Mufti of the Islamic University, Sheik Mohammed Sayed Tantawi, and with the Minister of Awqaf (Religious Affairs), Mahmoud Zaqzouq.
Both Egyptian officials have reportedly condemned today's terrorist attack in Grozny and sent condolences to the families of those killed and wounded.
Ahmad Hamroush, Chairman of the Egyptian Committee in the Afro-Asian Peoples Solidarity Commission, joined Messrs. Tantawi and Zaqzouq in expressing his commiseration to those who lost their loved ones to Sunday's terror attack in the Chechen capital.
A bomb went off this morning at Grozny's Dynamo stadium, the venue of an official ceremony to mark Victory Day. Four people were killed and another fifty-three wounded, according to the latest counts.
