ISIS terrorists claim responsibility for deadly Coptic Church attack in Cairo

The Daesh extremist group Tuesday claimed responsibility for a suicide attack that killed 23 people during Mass two days earlier at a church adjoining Cairo’s main cathedral.

The perpetrator of the attack was “a martyrdom seeker of the Islamic State,” the group’s Aamaq Agency media outlet says.

The bombing, in the complex that houses the seat of Pope Tawadros II, head of Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church, was one of the worst ever on a Christian place of worship in majority Muslim Egypt.
