Sisi vows to hunt down Egypt church bombers in Tawadros visit

Egypt's Coptic Church says it will cut back Easter celebrations after the two bomb attacks that killed at least 45 people last weekend.

State of emergency declared in Alexandria and Tanta, Egypt. In Tanta, a bomb hidden under a church pew was detonated.

On Wednesday, the Interior Ministry announced that it managed to reach the identity of the person who committed the suicide attack against the church of St. Mark's Orthodox Cathedral Church in Alexandria, adding that investigations are still ongoing to reach the identity of the Tanta perpetrator. ABM swore allegiance to the Islamic State in November of 2014 and became the Wilayah Sinai.

The private CBC Extra channel aired footage of the Alexandria blast, with CCTV showing what appeared to be the church entrance engulfed in flame and flying concrete moments after a guard turned a man away.

According to Egypt Independent, an independent newspaper based in Egypt, Roshdy was going to get married in a month. Security at many places of worship in the United States is also on high alert. El-Haggar was conducting inspections for people entering the church. "She was protecting Christians who were also praying in the Church".

Forty-four Copts were killed during the attacks, which the Islamic State group claimed credit for.

Palm Sunday falls on the Sunday before the Easter.

Egypt had been ruled under emergency law - which allows police expanded powers of arrest and surveillance - for decades before 2012.

The attacks came only weeks before Pope Francis plans to visit Egypt to promote peace and dialogue between Christians and Muslims in the country.

Her husband said during her funeral: "We don't have anything left but to pray for her, we wish that God will give us the strength and patience to bear her death".

The president has previously promised to protect Egypt's Christian minority - around 10 per cent of the 90 million strong population - from extremism.

Egypt has been fighting a terrorist wave that killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers since the military removed former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 and blacklisted his Muslim Brotherhood group as "a terrorist organization".

In March the same year, 13 people were killed in clashes between Muslims and Copts in Cairo's working class neighborhood of Moqattam, where around 1,000 Christians had gathered to protest over the torching of a church.

Sunday's blasts are the latest attacks against Christians.
