Blast at Egypt’s main Coptic Christian cathedral kills dozens

CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian officials say a bomb that was lobbed into the chapel of Cairo’s Coptic cathedral during Sunday Mass has killed 25 people and wounded another 49.

59-year-old Magdy Ramzy says it was a shattering explosion like nothing he had ever heard.

Wounded by shrapnel, he frantically searched the wrecked chapel, then outside, for his wife. Only later did he learn that she was killed, and his daughter-in-law and three of his grandchildren were wounded. Ramzy sobbed uncontrollably at the hospital as he leaned on relatives for support.

St. Mark’s Cathedral is the seat of Egypt’s Orthodox Christian church and its Coptic pope.

Authorities say most of the casualties in the blast during Sunday Mass were women and children.

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
