ISIS kills 43 in attacks on two Egyptian Christian churches on Palm Sunday

ISIS claims responsibility for Egypt's Palm Sunday church bombings

Imagine the result if this had happened in the US.

Or even in Europe.

ISIS claimed responsibility for bombings that killed 43 at two Coptic churches in Egypt on Palm Sunday -- brazen strikes against a vulnerable minority on one of the most important days on the Christian calendar.

The terror group's Amaq media wing said "a security detachment" of the Islamic State carried out the attacks on churches in the cities of Tanta and Alexandria. 

The bombings also left scores wounded.

. . . .

In a statement, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi condemned the attacks, saying the "outrageous" action "targets both the Copts and Muslims of the homeland." 

He ordered investigators to "hunt down the perpetrators" and "take all measures to offer the necessary care for the wounded."

He has called an urgent meeting of his country's National Defense Council and declared three days of nationwide mourning.
