Coptic Churches Bombed in Egypt

On Palm Sunday, two Coptic churches were targeted and bomb by ISIS, with a total of 47 casualties. The two churches are located in Alexandria and Tanta, cities in Egypt. ISIS warns for future attacks and makes a statement saying " the crusaders and their apostate followers must be aware that the bill between us and them is very large, and they will be paying it like a river of blood from their sons if God is willing".  Egypt announced a three-month state of emergency plan in response to the attacks done on the Coptic churches. Nations including the United States and sent their condolences, but has not revealed any plan to intervene
