The Egyptian Health Ministry said 29 citizens were killed and scores others injured when unidentified gunmen opened fire against a bus carrying Copts in the Upper Egyptian governorate of Meniya on Friday 26/05/2017.

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi offered condolences to the Egyptians after a terrorist attack that killed and injured dozens of Christians in Minya in southern Egypt.

"The terrorist attack and all other incidents target to topple the state," the president said in a televised speech, adding that the Daesh terrorist group’s strategy is to break the unity of the Egyptian people.

for its part, the Interior Ministry's media official said gunmen riding three 4×4 vehicles randomly opened fire at the bus while heading for a monastery in western Minya.

Several fixed and mobile security checkpoints have been deployed after the incident and a manhunt operation has started, he added.
