23 COPTIC CHRISTIANS KILLED TO SHOTS IN EGYPT

At least 23 people have been killed and 27 wounded in a shoot-out by a group of men against a Coptic Christian bus west of the Egyptian town of Al Adua in southern Egypt’s Minia province, Say spokesman for the Egyptian Ministry of Health, Khaled Muyahid.

Among those injured, at least 7 are in serious condition, a security source told EFE.

The attack took place when the bus, which carried these Coptic Christians, was headed to the monastery of San Samuel, a few kilometers from Al Adua.

The security source said that an unknown number of armed men, who were in four cars, surrounded the bus and started firing while the vehicle was driving along a road near Al Adua on the way to the monastery.

At the moment, no group has assumed responsibility for the attack and it is unknown how many people perpetrated it.

The Coptic Christian minority has been the victim of several attacks in recent months, as on April 9, Palm Sunday, the terrorist group Islamic State (EI) committed two attacks on the cathedrals of San Jorge in the city of Tanta and The one of San Marcos of Alexandria (Mediterranean coast), in which 46 people died.

Also, on December 11, a terrorist affiliated with the EI was blown up inside the church of San Pedro, located next to the Coptic cathedral of Cairo, and killed about thirty faithful, mostly women and girls.
