]>> This was the scene inside a Cairo church on Sunday.
rshippers traumatized after a blast ripped through the building beside the city's Coptic cathedral. At least 25 people were killed and a further 49 injured when the explosive device went off in the women's section of St. Peter's Church.
The force of the blast causing damage to the church interior and knocking out several windows. The Coptic cathedral itself, which lies within the same complex, was said to be unharmed. No one's claimed responsibility for the attack, but it comes as Islamic State's branch in Northern Sinai wages a war against the government.
Egypt's witnessed a series of attacks in recent months including two roadside bombs targeting police in Cairo on Friday. But Sunday's attack is likely to shake up the country's Christian community who have long complained of discrimination in a predominantly Muslim country.
