Cairo – An Islamic State affiliate in Egypt has released a new video showing the suicide bomber who attacked a church in December and vowing more attacks on the country’s Christian minority.
The 20-minute video, which emerged Monday, said Christians were the extremist group’s “favorite prey.”
It showed footage of Abu Abdullah al-Masri, who killed nearly 30 people, mainly women, when he attacked a Cairo church in December. The narrator says the attack was “only the beginning.”
Egypt’s Coptic Christians, who makes up around 10 percent of the population, have been increasingly targeted by Muslim extremists since the 2013 military overthrow of an Islamist president.
Priced at Rs 50,434 (ex-showroom Delhi), the two new colours would be available at select outlets across the country.
The main opposition says the move could be used to intimidate and “destroy” rival parties.
