As widely reported, some three dozen faithful died and over 100 were injured in terrorist bombings at two Coptic churches in Egypt on Palm Sunday—April 9, 2017.

Over two dozen people were killed and over 70 were wounded by an explosion at a Coptic church in Tanta. Within hours, a second bombing at Alexandria’s Saint Mark Cathedral left at least 11 people dead and 30 injured. His Holiness, Tawadros II, Pope of Alexandria and All Africa of the Coptic Orthodox Church, was in the cathedral at the time of the explosion but was not injured.
