At least 235 killed in Egypt mosque attack

Egypt Sinai: Bomb and gun attack on mosque

The President of the U.S. denounced on Friday's attack on a Sufi mosque in Egypt that killed around 270 people and left 90 others wounded and reiterated his stance that terrorists must be defeated militarily.

He added in his tweet "The world can not tolerate terrorism, we must defeat them militarily and discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence".

Egypt's state news agency reported the casualty toll, citing "official sources", revising it upward several times following the officials' initial reports.

"What is happening in North Sinai is a real reflection of our efforts to combat terrorism, and Egypt is in this war alone on behalf of the region, and the entire world" al-Sisi went on to say. The blast occurred during Friday prayers, when the complex was packed with worshipers.

"These attacks on people praying in mosques and churches only strengthen our determination to stand together, & defeat terrorism & hate", Casson wrote on his Twitter.

Security forces have been battling militants in northern Sinai for years, but attacks to date have focused on military and police assets, although assassinations of individuals IS considers government spies or religious heretics are not uncommon.

Egyptians gather around bodies following a gun and bombing attack at the Rawda mosque in North Sinai, Egypt, on November 24, 2017.

The security officers said the men opened fire on worshipers during prayers while driving in off-road vehicles. The attackers also fired upon the ambulances, eye witnesses claimed.
