15 PEOPLE DIED & 42 INJURED IN A POWERFUL EXPLOSION INSIDE A COPTIC CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN EGYPTIAN NILE :

At least 15 people were killed and 42 others injured today in a powerful explosion inside a Coptic Christian church in the Egyptian Nile delta city of Tanta.  Sources said that the explosion took place inside the Mar Gerges Coptic Church.   The primary investigations suggest that a person put an explosive device inside the church during the Christian prayers celebrating the Palm Sunday, the sources said.    Egypt’s Christian minority has often been targeted by Islamist militants. Egypt has seen a wave of attacks by militants since 2013 when the military overthrew President Mohammed Morsi, an elected leader who hailed from the Muslim Brotherhood, and launched a crackdown against Islamists. The Rediff.com ; 9th.
