Worshippers back in Egyptian church hit in attack
Alexandria: Christians are back praying in a church targeted a day earlier by an apparent suicide bomber in an attack that killed 21 and wounded 97.
Dozens attended Sunday Mass at the Saints Church in Egypt`s Mediterranean port city of Alexandria while riot police backed by armoured vehicles were deployed outside.
The attack on Saturday was the worst violence against Egypt`s Christian minority in a decade. It sparked clashes between Christians who say the government hasn`t done enough to protect them and riot police.
The Interior Ministry blamed the bombing on "foreign elements”.
The Alexandria governor accused al Qaeda, pointing to the terror network`s branch in Iraq, which has attacked Christians there and threatened Egypt`s Coptic Orthodox Christian community.
