Trump ‘strongly condemns’ Palm Sunday blasts in Egypt

US President Donald Trump condemns the Coptic church bombings in Egypt that killed at least 37 people.

“So sad to hear of the terrorist attack in Egypt. US strongly condemns. I have great confidence that President el-Sisi will handle situation properly,” Trump writes in a series of tweets.

The attacks in Alexandria and the Nile Delta town of Tanta north of Cairo were claimed by the Islamic State terror group.

Trump met with the Egyptian president on Monday at the White House, during which the US president vowed the two countries would work together to fight terrorism.
