Another Bomb Blast Hit Alexandria Church in Cairo

In Alexandria, another blast hit a church on Palm Sunday Celebration, causing casualties, according to state TV.

At least 25 people had been killed and dozens wounded in a bomb attack on a church north of Cairo.

Hours later, another blast in front of a church in Alexandria injured several people.

The explosive device at St. George Coptic church in Tanta was planted under a seat in the church, where it detonated in the main prayer hall.
News footage showed people gathered at the church, singing prayer hymns. The video then quickly switches to bars as harrowing screams and cries echo in the background.
Regrading Alexandria bombing, a suicide bombing took place near Saint Mark’s Coptic church in Egypt’s Alexandria, according to Egyptian TV.
The attack killed at least two and wounded 21 people.

The Egyptian media said that Patriarch Theodore II of Alexandria and all Africa may have been inside the church during the attack, but it reported that he was not harmed.

Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter, and marks the start of Holy Week for Christians.

No group claimed their responsibility for the bombings, but the “Islamic State” has claimed their responsibility for the attacks on the Coptic community in recent months.

On December 11, a strong blast hit the Coptic Cathedral in Cairo, killing 25 and wounding 49 people. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.

Moreover, the militant group pledged to carry out more attacks against Christians in Egypt.
