Terror in Egypt: 26 dead as gunmen fire on bus carrying Christians

There's a new report of a terror attack in Egypt. According to Egypt's Health Ministry spokesman Khaled Mugahed in a chat with TV al-Masriya, gunmen opened fire on a bus carrying Coptic Christians south of the Egyptian capital this morning killing 26 people and wounding 25.

The attack happened while the bus was traveling on the road to the St. Samuel Monastery in the Minya governorate, about 220 kilometers (140 miles) south of Cairo.
 
The ministry said there were between eight and 10 attackers dressed in military uniforms, according to witnesses. At the moment, no group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which comes on the eve of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan. 

Egypt has been fighting Islamic State group-linked militants who have waged an insurgency, mainly focused in the volatile north of the Sinai Peninsula. Coptic Christians have faced persecution and discrimination in Egypt, which has spiked since the toppling of Hosni Mubarak's regime in 2011. 


Dozens have been killed in sectarian violence. Coptic Christians make up about 10% of Egypt's population of 91 million. They base their theology on the teachings of the apostle Mark, who introduced Christianity to Egypt.

As much as a lot of Muslims claim that this is not general, they should begin to realise that there is a lot if evil in their religion.

I agree, not all muslims are guilty of this but a religion where this kind of evil exists (just because you think Heaven is a porn country/community where everyone will be given a room each to f**k 7 virgins, which is ridiculous by the way!) shows that you need to reevaluate yourself and make a decision on how you want to create a relationship with God

Not doing that assessment is foolish....and can lead to eternal damnation. I'd rather reassess if I were a muslim.

And mumu Islam faithful will come here to say the terrorists are not islam.

Keep fooling yourself and all the politically correct Satanists.

This is what I know. Moslems all over the world will continue to kill and murder infidels till enternity. Nobody can stop them. It is in their Quran.


Donald Trump is trying to prevent this jihadists from entering the United States, but some idiots like Linda ikeji and other evil celebrities want to stop him.

And some people still believe Christians and Moslems worship the same God. Please wake up from your slumber.
