Terrorist Attack in Egypt Kills Over 200 People
Militants attacked worshipers at a mosque in Egypt – killing at least two hundred people.
There was confusion and panic outside the mosque after Egypt’s deadliest ever terror attack.
Worshipers were praying when militants detonated a powerful bomb.
As people ran, they were gunned down by attackers in off-road vehicles parked outside.
Gunmen also targeted ambulances which had arrived to treat the injured.
The terrorists blew up parked cars to block escape routes.
The attack happened in the North Sinai region, where the Egyptian government has been fighting Islamic insurgents.
Egypt’s President promised a brutal response and declared three days of mourning. No group has claimed responsibility, but authorities believe an Islamic state affiliate may have been behind the massacre.
