Cairo-Egypt: In a deadly attack that targeted Coptic Orthodox Christians, terrorists have killed at least seven. Many others were wounded. The attack was unleashed on a group of innocent Coptic Orthodox Christian pilgrims who were heading towards St. Samuel Coptic Christian monastery near Minya, which is 270km south of Cairo, the Capital City of Egypt.
Reports claim that the death toll is likely to rise. This is the second deadly attack on Coptic Christians heading to St. Samuel Monastery. The last attack was in May 2017. The attacks are part of the ongoing assault ( for several years) against Coptic Christians in Egypt by various terrorists and extremist Islamic groups.
