ISIS is claiming responsibility for two explosions aimed at Coptic Christians struck two churches that were holding Palm Sunday services in Egypt.

A bomb exploded in a church packed with worshippers in the town of Tanta, north of Cairo, killing at least 37 people and wounding 100 others, officials said.

The CBC reports, a second blast killed 11 — including three police officers — and wounded 35 others at a church in Alexandria, Egypt.

 

 

The attacks were the latest in a series of assaults on Egypt's Christian minority, which makes up around 10 per cent of the population and has been repeatedly targeted by Islamic extremists.
