Egypt's leading Islamic authority condemns Paris attack

CAIRO, Jan 7 (Reuters) - Egypt’s leading Islamic authority, Al-Azhar, condemned a fatal attack by hooded gunmen on Wednesday on the Paris offices of a satirical magazine known for lampooning radical Islam.

Al-Azhar, a thousand-year-old seat of religious learning respected by Muslims around the world, referred to the attack which killed at least 12 people as a criminal act on its Facebook site.
