Egypt declares state of emergency; ISIS attacks killed scores of Palm Sunday churchgoers

The Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi has declared a state of emergency that will last three months.  The reason for this is the two bombs that were sent off at churches on Palm Sunday.  The two bombs killed 44 people and have injured 126 people.  ISIS is taking credit for the bombing.  ISIS has been warning that they would start targeting Egypt’s Christians who makes up about 10% of the country.  President el-Sisi addressed the people saying that security efforts would step up in the search for the people responsible. Then the President said the media needs to be cautions on how they are going to cover the investigation.
