No one has yet claimed credit for this attack but it is similar to many other terror attacks that have been waged against Christians in the country by Islamic terrorists. Attack took place close to where 28 worshippers were shot dead, also by Muslim terrorists in May 2017.
Gunmen have killed at least seven Christians in an attack on a bus near a Coptic monastery in northern Egypt. “Terrorists opened fire on a tour bus from Sohag province, heading back from the… monastery,” said Anba Makarious, the Archbishop of Minya. Church spokesman Bouls Halim said the casualty figure was likely to rise.
