Deadly Blasts Hit Egypt's Coptic Churches

At least 21 people have been killed in an explosion inside a church in the Egyptian Nile delta city of Tanta, local media reported, as state television said another blast killed 11 in front of a church in Alexandria.
The self-styled Islamic State terrorist group on Sunday claimed both attacks, in a statement via its Amaq website, Aljazeera reported.
The first attack occurred in the Coptic church of Mar Girgis, also known as St. George, which was packed with worshippers marking Palm Sunday, a Christian feast commemorating the entry of Jesus Christ (PBUH) into Beit-ul-Moqaddas. Egypt's state television reported that at least 69 people were wounded.
