Gunman have shot a bus carrying Coptic Christians in central Egypt. At least 28 people were dead and wounding 25 others. The bus was going to the Monastery of St Samuel the Confessor. About 85 miles south of Cairo, from Minya province when it came under fire.

The Islamic State (IS) militants have targeted Copts several times months ago, and also vowed to do it again. On the same people that shot the bus, two suicide bombings at Palm Sunday services at churches in the north on 9 April left 46 people dead. The Copts were traveling to St Samuel’s monastery to pray. The bus was on a small convoy and was stopped in a road near Adwa police station.

Between 8 to 10 gunmen wearing military uniforms attacked the convoy. After the gunmen fired at other vehicles with automatic weapons before taking off in 4×4 vehicles. None of the gunmen have been identified. Also children have been involved being killed.
