At least 184 killed in Egypt mosque attack
At least 184 people have been killed and scores more injured in a bomb and gun attack targeting a mosque in Egypt’s north Sinai, state television has reported.
The assailants planted home-made explosives in the al-Rawdah mosque in the northern city of Arish and detonated them as worshipers were leaving after prayers. They also shot at anyone who tried to escape, a security source told Efe news.
More than 100 people were wounded in the attack, reports said. Pictures from the scene showed rows of bloodied victims inside the mosque.
No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
