The evil savages, Isis have claimed responsibility for the terror attacks that killed at least 44 people in Egypt yesterday.

As Coptic Christians were attending religious services in Egypt today to celebrate Palm Sunday the start of the Holy Week ceremonies for the Christian community, when a terrorist denoted a bomb in St. George’s Coptic Church in the city of Tanta in the district of the Nile Delta that has killed 21 people and injuring scores more. A second bomb was detonated in another church killing a further 16 people.

As a result, Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said a 3 month state of emergency will be imposed after the two bombings yesterday.

“A series of steps will be taken, most importantly, the announcement of a state of emergency for three months after legal and constitution steps are taken,” Mr Sisi said on television last night.
