Bilde fra et tidligere angrep

Minst sju personer ble drept da flere væpnede menn åpnet ild mot en buss på vei til et koptisk kloster i Minya-provinsen i Egypt.

Klosteret ligger om lag 20 mil sør for Kairo.

A similar attack involving the same monastery took place in May 2017, when gunmen driving three 4×4 wheelers shot at a bus carrying Coptic pilgrims to the same location, killing 30 people.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for that attack.

Kopterne er kristne og var i Egypt før islam kom. Islam liker ikke konkurrenter.
