At Least 9 Dead in Attack on Coptic Church in Egypt
Two Coptic priests
Mar Mina, Egypt, December 29th, 2017 Death, chaos, mayhem and slaughter – this is what it’s like to be a Christian living in a majority Muslim country. This is the future of the West and the future beyond this is the total death and extinction of Christians and Europeans if won’t don’t stop the invasion.
Reuters reports on the Coptic Church attack today:
The two attackers opened fire at the entrance to the church of Mar Mina in Helwan district, which was being guarded by police in the run-up to Orthodox Christmas celebrations next week, security sources said.
One attacker was shot dead by security forces, the sources and the state-run news agency MENA reported. State television said the second had been captured.
Islamist militants have claimed several attacks on Egypt’s large Christian minority in recent years, including two bomb attacks on Palm Sunday in April and a blast at Cairo’s largest Coptic cathedral last December that killed 28 people.
The Health Ministry said that nine people had been killed on Friday in addition to the gunman, and five wounded, including two women in serious condition.
Local media said the dead attacker had been wearing an explosive belt, and that two other bombs had been defused near the church.
Sirens were heard in central Cairo immediately after the incident.
Police have stepped up security measures around churches ahead of the Coptic Christmas celebrations on Jan. 7, deploying officers outside Christian places of worship and setting up metal detectors at some of the bigger churches.
