The last reported told that 44 people had been killed in the two bombs attacks, and more than 100 injured. The two bomb-suicide attacks had been take place at St. George Church in the Nile Delta town of Tanta, where at least 27 people were killed and 78 others wounded and 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 17 dead, and 48 injured. The attack came just after Pope Tawadros II – leader of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria – finished services. These attacks came at the start of Holy Week and few weeks before Pope arrival in the country. Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi accused unnamed countries of fueling instability in the country, adding “Egyptians have foiled plots and efforts by countries and fascist, terrorist organizations that tried to control Egypt”. El-Sisi ordered the immediate deployment of troops to assist police in protecting vital facilities across the country.
