Cabinet Approves three-month State of Emergency Starting Today

Egypt’s cabinet has approved the presidential decree during its Monday meeting that imposes the state of emergency for three months all across the country starting Monday at 1 p.m.

President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi announced on Sunday the state of emergency in Egypt following the twin attack that targeted two churches.

The first bomb detonated in Tanta at St George’s church, killing at least 27 and injuring more than 70.

A second bomb detonated shortly after the first one in Alexandria in St Mark’s church, leaving at least 18 killed and dozens injured.

The Islamic State (IS) has claimed its responsibility for the attack.

The state of emergency was implemented in the peninsula of Sinai by a presidential decree that was issued in October 2014.

The State of emergency cannot be announced for more than three months, then it can be extended.
