Agence France Presse

CAIRO: The head of Al-Azhar, one of the most prestigious centers of Sunni learning, Wednesday condemned “barbaric crimes” committed by ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

Militants are acting “under the guise of this holy religion and have given themselves the name ‘Islamic State’ in an attempt to export their false Islam,” Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb said at an international conference in Cairo on fighting extremism.
