Deadly blast hits near church in Egyptian city of Tanta

23 people were killed and 50 injured following a bombing near a church in Egypt's Tanta, north of Cairo, Al Arabiya News Channel reported on Sunday.

Coptic Christians make up about 10 percent of Egypt’s population of 85 million. They have largely coexisted peacefully with the majority-Muslim public for centuries.

Towards the end of 2016, 25 people were killed and 31 wounded in an explosion that targeted the Cathedral of Saint Mark in the Abbasia district in Cairo.
