Hamas condemns Palm Sunday blasts in Egypt

Gaza’s Hamas rulers condemn a church bombing in Egypt’s Nile Delta that killed at least 30 people.

In a statement Sunday, the terror group describes the attack as “a crime.”

Spokesman Fawzi Barhoum says “Hamas wishes safety, security, stability and prosperity for Egypt and its people.”

The explosion in the town of Tanta killed at least 30 people as Coptic Christians were celebrating Palm Sunday. Barhoum spoke before a second blast at a church in the coastal city of Alexandria killed 11 people and wounded dozens.
