AN EXPLOSION has killed 13 people and left 42 injured near a church in Egypt.

 

The blast has caused widespread carnage near the church in Tanta City, north of the capital Cairo, security sources told Sky News.

The explosion took place in the town of Tanta as Coptic Christians were marking Palm Sunday.

Christians make up around 10 percent of Egypt’s population and have repeatedly been targeted by Islamic extremists.

Egypt state media says the bomb has gone off in a church in the Nile Delta, causing casualties.

The MENA news agency attributed the report to unnamed Interior Ministry officials, who provided no further details.
