Egypt: Shock and dismay as Mosque attack death toll rises to 305

Egyptians reacted with shock and dismay on Saturday after the death toll from Friday’s mosque suicide attack rose to 305. Flags across the country flew at half-mast as locals in the capital Cairo digested the latest news. Local Bahgat Mohamed Ibrahim said: «I think that this is something that is managed outside of Egypt and I do not think that an Egyptian did it, it is certainly not an... Еще Egyptian.» Another, Ibrahim Mahmoud said: «The state must punish the perpetrators and President Sisi must intervene to prevent terrorism. In the days of Hosni Mubarak, there was no terrorism even if there was corruption, but we were safe.» At least 305 people died in the assault, which was launched during Friday prayers and has not yet been claimed by any group. Egypt's public prosecutor said there were up to 30 attackers at the scene.
