The horrifying attack on the church that left dozens dead and injured 49 others did not manage to completely ruin Coptic Christmas. According to Kamel Al-Wazeery, head of the Egyptian Armed Forces Engineering Authority, the St. Paul and St. Peter Church will be renovated before 7 January.
The devastating blast took place on Sunday in St. Mark’s Cathedral, which is Egypt’s main Orthodox Church in Cairo’s Abbasiya.
State officials announced that a suicide bomber blew himself up inside the church, killing at least 25 people. Media reported news on several injured victims who have left hospitals in good condition.
