Thursday, 30 May, 2017 0

Gunmen have attacked a bus carrying Coptic Christians in central Egypt, killing at least 26 people and wounding 25.

The bus was heading towards the Monastery of St Samuel the Confessor in Minya province about 140 miles south of Cairo when it came under fire, said the BBC.

No group has so far claimed responsibility.

The attack follows two suicide bombings at Palm Sunday services at churches in the Egyptian cities of Alexandria and Tanta in April, which killed 46.
