This is only another episode in a series of attacks against Christians of Egypt.
Following the attacks, Egypt’s president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi announced a three-month state of emergency on Sunday night in response to the bombings.
In December 2016, 25 were killed after a bomb struck a chapel connected to St Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in Cairo.
Egypt’s Christians have long suffered from multiple attacks including church burnings among other attacks.
About 54 incidents have occurred against the religious minority in Egypt in 2016, according to the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy.
