Egypt’s Ministry of Interior (MoI) has announced, in a statement, the identity of Tanta’s suicide bomber as Mamdouh Amin Mohamed Al-Baghdadi.

According to the statement, 40-year-old Al Boghdadi joined a terrorist cell, headed by Amro Abbas Saad Ibrahim where he received training on the use of weapons and explosive devices.

The Ministry’s statement has disclosed Al-Baghdadi’s involvement in a previous terrorist attack on a security checkpoint in Egypt’s Wadi al-Gadeed.

The statement has also revealed the names of three terrorists who allegedly belong to the same terrorist cell. The first one is Salama Wahb Allah Abass Ibrahim, the second is Abdel Rahman Hassan Ahmed Mubarak and the third is Ali Shahat Hussein Shehata.

A bomb exploded at St. George’s church in Egypt’s Al Gharbeyya governorate killing 28 and injuring 71 celebrating Palm Sunday. The attack came hours before another attack in Alexandria that struck St Mark’s Cathedral.

This has been the second attack to strike Tanta in less than 10 days. On 31 March, at least 16 people were injured when a bomb exploded outside a police training centre.

The explosion comes as Coptic Christians started celebrations for Palm Sunday.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for Egypt’s church bombings in a statement.

As a result of the church bombings, President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi declared a state of emergency for three months.
