184 Persons Confirmed Dead In Egypt Mosque Attack

Earlier today there was an attack on a mosque in Egypt which left many people dead, although could not report at the tine of the attack.

But according to reports, the death toll in the Egypt mosque attack has risen to 184, and 125 people are also confirmed wounded in the attack.

Suspected militants set off a bomb at a mosque this afternoon while worshippers were observing Friday prayers. They then stormed the mosque in Egypt’s restive northern Sinai province and opened fire on worshippers. Those survivors who tried to escape were also shot as they left the mosque.

About 30 ambulances soon arrived to take the wounded to the hospital but the terrorists attacked the ambulances, killing survivors. The attack targeted supporters of the security forces attending prayers there, two eyewitnesses and a security source said.

 No faction has claimed responsibility for the attack, but Egyptian military has been fighting ISIS insurgency in Sinai for three years and it is believed ISIS might be responsible for the attack.


Cairo’s international airport has boosted security following the attack, with more troops seen patrolling passenger halls, conducting searches and manning checkpoints at airport approaches, AP reports.

The British Ambassador in Europe John Casson condemned the attack via Twitter.

Sheikh Sabah IV Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, emir of Kuwait, has sent condolences to Egyptian president Abdelfattah Al-Sisi over the victims of the bomb attack. Condemning these “criminial heinous acts”, the emir voiced his “solidarity and sympathy” with Egypt.
