At least 3 killed in Alexandria church bombing — state media

Egyptian state TV says at least 3 people are killed and 21 others injured in an explosion near Saint Mark’s Church in Alexandria.

Egypt’s Coptic church said Pope Tawadros II had attended Palm Sunday mass there. It was unclear whether Tawadros had left the building before the blast went off.

The explosion comes hours after a bomb at a Coptic church north of Cairo killed 25 people and injured more than 70 others.
