Terrorist Attacks Hit Egypt, Sweden

ISIS claimed responsibility for two bombings that killed 49 people on Palm Sunday in Egypt as Coptic Christians celebrated the holiday. The attacks took place in Tanta, where a bomb was set off inside of a church, and Alexandria, where the attack occurred just outside of a church.

In Stockholm on Friday, a man utilized a delivery truck to kill four people and wound fifteen more. The attacker is believed to a Uzbekistan man who unsuccessfully sought asylum in Sweden. The suspect was not killed in the aftermath and is in custody waiting trial.


This two attacks come shortly after terrorists hit a Russian transit system, killing 11 and injuring more than 40 in St. Petersburg.
