PARIS, April 25, 2006 (AFP) - Triple bombings that ripped through the Red Sea resort of Dahab killing 18 people have caused "horror and indignation", French President Jacques Chirac said in a letter to his Egyptian counterpart Tuesday.

Expressing his "most sincere condolences and solidarity in this test", Chirac told President Hosni Mubarak that France was "ready to give you all the help needed in the rescue operations".

In a statement issued by his office Monday shortly after the Dahab attacks, Chirac had expressed his sympathy and dismay.

In his letter to Mubarak he said "the terrorist act of which Egypt has become a victim concerns all peace and stability loving countries. It therefore concerns all of us and calls for unwavering determination".

Six foreigners were among the casualties of Monday's attacks. Eighty-three people were wounded, according to Egyptian health ministry figures.
