At Least 200 Dead In Egypt Mosque Attack

Egypt bombing Sinai

Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi promised vengeance in a speech to the nation after a deadly terrorist attack on a mosque in North Sinai killed at least 235 worshippers.

Earlier in the day, Trump described the attack as "horrible and cowardly" and its victims as "innocent and defenseless worshipers".

He added in his tweet "The world can not tolerate terrorism, we must defeat them militarily and discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence". The state news agency MENA put the death toll at 235.

"I will get it all done, but what a mistake, in lives and dollars (6 trillion), to be there in the first place!" The blast occurred during Friday prayers, when the complex was packed with worshipers.

The assailants planted home-made explosive in the mosque in the town of Bir al-Abd, near Arish, and detonated them as worshippers were leaving after prayers.

Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah stressed the Gulf state's support for Egypt, the security and stability of its people and all measures taken by the Egyptian government to face terrorism.
