[ Images: Mohamed Abd El Ghany/Reuters ]“The latest bombings and killings of Christians in Egypt have highlighted again the need for solidarity, aid, and prayers for persecuted Christians around the world.

This has been called the single deadliest day of violence against Egyptian Christians in decades. It comes as attacks against Christians have increased in recent months. Earlier this year, Islamic State announced they would be targeting Egyptian Christians.

Open Doors contact in Egypt said, “One of the most joyful days for Christians in Egypt is Palm Sunday… The joyful day turned into a painful tragedy.”

He heard about the first attack as he was leaving to go to his own church service with his family. Shortly after his service finished he heard about the second attack, “…doubling our pain and deepening our shock.”
