"In der nordägyptischen Stadt Tanta wurden heute bei einem Sprengstoff-Anschlag 21 Christen getötet und 42 verletzt. Es ist davon auszugehen, dass Mohammedaner den Palmsonntag zu einem symbolischen Angriff auf das Christentum genutzt haben. Erst im Dezember hatte ein Selbstmord-Attentäter des Islamischen Staates in einer Kirche in Kairo (Foto) mit einem schweren Bombenanschlag fast 30 Menschen in den Tod gerissen."
"In the northern Egyptian town of Tanta, today 21 Christians were killed and another 42 wounded in a bomb attack. It is assumed, that muslims chose Palm Sunday for a symbolic attack on Christianity. Last december, an IS suicide bomber carried out a similar attack in Cairo which cost almost 30 people their lives."
Pray for the victims.
UPDATE: Fox News reports:
"At least 43 people were killed and more than 100 injured in two separate Palm Sunday attacks at Coptic Christian churches in Egypt, each carried out by the ISIS terror group.
The first blast happened at St. George Church in the Nile Delta town of Tanta, where at least 27 people were killed and 78 others wounded, officials said.
Television footage showed the inside of the church, where a large number of people gathered around what appeared to be lifeless, bloody bodies covered with papers.
A second explosion – which Egypt’s Interior Ministry says was caused by a suicide bomber who tried to storm St. Mark's Cathedral in the coastal city of Alexandria -- left at least 16 dead, and 41 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.
At least three police officers were killed in the St. Mark’s attack, the ministry told The Associated Press."
