235 killed in Egypt mosque attack
About 235 people were killed and 109 more wounded in a bomb and gun attack on a mosque in North Sinai, Egypt's general prosecutor has said. Police say men in off-road vehicles fired upon worshippers during Friday prayers at the mosque, in the town of Bir al-Abed. It appears that the explosion happened first, and the attackers fired on the worshippers as they fled.
NY Times' Rukmini Callimachi: "No group has claimed responsibility, but we know ISIS has a powerful affiliate there and the group has long targeted Sufis around the world."
