An ambush by Islamic State (IS) militants on three buses of Coptic Christians in Minya on Friday has claimed the lives of at least seven people and wounded at least 14. The pilgrims were targeted as they were on their way from Cairo to a remote desert monastery. Victims were taken to hospital in Minya. Their relatives could be seen waiting outside and later angrily demonstrating after they... Еще were denied entry. A previous attack by Islamist extremists on Christian pilgrims heading to the same monastery killed nearly thirty people in 2017.
