ISIS claims responsibility for attack on Coptic Christians in Egypt

Islamic State (IS) has claimed it was behind an attack on a bus carrying Coptic Christians in Egypt that killed at least 29 people and wounded about 25 others on Friday.


Masked men boarded several vehicles carrying the Christians and opened fire at close range, witnesses said.

The funerals of some of the victims were held on Friday night.

Egyptian aircraft struck "terrorist training camps" in neighbouring Libya in retaliation for the attack.

President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi said six strikes hit the Libyan town of Derna. He said he would "not hesitate to strike terrorist camps anywhere".
