Photos: Death toll in suicide bomb attacks on two Egyptian coptic churches rises to 37
No fewer than 37 Egyptian christians have been confirmed dead with 100
others seriously injured in two bomb attacks at Coptic Christian
churches in Egypt Sunday morning. The first blast happened at St. George
church in the Nile Delta town of Tanta, where at least 26 people were
killed and 71 others wounded.
A second explosion was later reported at St. Mark's Cathedral in the
coastal city of Alexandria, leaving at least 11 dead, and 35 injured.
The attack came just after Pope Tawadros II -- leader of the Coptic
Orthodox Church of Alexandria, finished services, but aides told local
media that he was unharmed. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the
attacks via its Aamaq media agency.
The terrorist group had recently released a video vowing to carry out
attacks against Christians, who they describe as "infidels" that are
empowering the West against Muslims.
