A Church Massacre in Egypt

A suicide bomber attacked a Coptic church in Cairo, Egypt on Sunday, killing 24 and wounding 49. This was one of the deadliest attacks on this minority Christian group, which makes up 10% of the population. 

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi said the bomber was Mahmoud Shafiq Mohammed Mustafa, 22, and four people were arrested in connection with the attack. No group claimed responsibility.

Jonathan Rashad was on the scene at the chapel, which is adjacent to St. Mark’s Cathedral — the Coptic Orthodox Church’s seat — and captured the horror of what was left behind.
