15 dead after Egypt explosion


Authorities report that 15 people have been killed, following an explosion at an Egyptian church on Sunday.

The bomb attack took place at the Coptic Church in Tanta City, just north of Cairo, while dozens more have been wounded in the explosion.

Local Christians were marking Palm Sunday when the explosion took place. The attack comes in the wake of reports that Egypt’s Christian population has consistently been targeted by Islamic extremist groups in the region.
