Scott MacLeod reports that this statement from Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was broadcast on Egyptian television shortly after the death was announced: "Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin (has been assassinated) by bullets of treachery at the hands of extremists hostile to peace. He was a man who gave to the peace process his ample energies and thought for the sake of achieving security and peace for the people of Israel and of the region after wars and bloody struggle. Egypt condemns this criminal act and asserts that achieving a just and comprehensive peace is a mission that only brave men can take upon themselves. Many principled men have fallen along the path towards achieving it, sacrificing their lives for the sake of their people."
