The Islamic State murdered 35 Christians in two different attacks on Coptic Churches in Egypt on Palm Sunday.
The first explosion took place inside a Coptic church in Egypt’s Tanta, north of Cairo.
The Daily Mail reported:
Some 26 people killed and at least 50 were injured in an explosion inside a church in the Egyptian Nile delta city of Tanta on Sunday, Egypt’s state television reported.
A second blast happened outside a church in Alexandria killing six people and injuring a further 66, Egypt’s health ministry has confirmed.
Coptic Pope Tawadros II had said Mass in Alexandria before the explosion.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
A bombing at Cairo’s largest Coptic cathedral killed at least 25 people and wounded 49 in December, many of them women and children, in the deadliest attack on Egypt’s Christian minority in years.
