A bomb blast at a Church North of Cairo has killed at least 43 people and injured dozens. In the latest attack on Egypt’s Coptic Christians, Mar Girgis Coptic church in the Nile delta city of Tanta was targeted as worshippers marked Palm Sunday.

No one immediately claimed the attack, which comes a week before Easter. The attack comes ahead of Pope Francis’s visit to Cairo this month to show solidarity with Egypt’s Christian community.
