Anglican leaders around the world have added their voices to the global wave of solidarity that followed the deadly Palm Sunday attacks on Coptic churches in Egypt. The terror group Daesh claimed responsibility for the attacks which left at least 44 people dead and many more injured. A suicide-bomber detonated one bomb inside St George’s Church in Tanta and, hours later, another terrorist detonated a bomb-vest outside St Mark’s Coptic Cathedral in Alexandria as the Coptic Pope, Tawadros II, was finishing the Mass inside.
