The news and images out of Egypt today are devastating.
Coptic Christians on their way to a prayer meeting were ambushed aboard the bus and showered with gunfire. As of this writing, more than two dozen Christians have been killed. Children are among the dead.
Today was the first day of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Christians in the region were already on high alert. Today’s attack will only deepen their concern.
The investigation is ongoing—the attack happened today—but Islamic extremists have been increasingly violent toward Christians in recent months.
