MOSCOW, Apr. 09 (Press Shia) – A suicide bombing took place near Saint Mark’s Coptic church in Egypt’s Alexandria on Sunday, according to Egyptian TV.

The blast occurred on Palm Day, a Christian feast commemorating the entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem.

Earlier in the day, one blast hit a church in Tanta; another blast targeted a police station in the same city later.

There were lots of people in both churches — they came to join the divine service.

On December 11, a strong blast hit the Coptic Christian cathedral complex in Cairo, killing 25 and wounding 49 people. Daesh claimed responsibility for the attack.
