Suicide bomber tries to attack a Coptic Christian church in Egypt only to blow himself to pieces

A suicide attack against a Coptic Christian church north of Cairo failed today when the bomber blew himself up when security guards approached him.

The man had been walking among churchgoers, while wearing an explosives belt, and tried to enter the building in the Mostorod district in Qaliubiya province.

But heightened security around the church prevented him from reaching his intended target, state media and security sources said.
