At the start of Holy Week, leading up to Easter, and weeks before Pope Francis is due to visit Egypt, the Arab world’s most populous country was hit twice by bombs.

Two blasts hit Coptic Christian churches in Egypt and ISIS took responsibility. The bombing killed 37 people and injured more than 100.

The first blast happened at St. George church in the Nile Delta town of Tanta. At least 26 people were killed and 71 others wounded.

Graphic video showed the inside of the church. A large group of people gathered around lifeless, bloody bodies covered with papers.

St. Mark’s Cathedral in the coastal city of Alexandria, was the scene of a second blast. At least 11 dead and 35 injured were reported.

The viscous attack came just after Pope Tawadros II, the leader of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria, had finished services. He was unharmed.

ISIS has claimed, “Christians are our favorite prey.”

Egypt has striven to battle a wave of Islamic militancy since 2013 when a military overthrow of an elected Islamist president occurred.

I am the ‘chief editor’ at the ‘The Trump Times’. I adore journalism. Politics seems to be my preferred genre although I do not hesitate to write anything that strikes me as interesting. Researching and finding ‘Breaking News’ makes my blood rush. I’ve written seventeen books and over that including books in conglomeration with others, mostly for charity.
Doing graphic art design has always been fun for me. Sometimes I incorporate this talent into my articles or when a special ‘feature picture’ is required.
