Egypt's Coptic Christians Cancel Easter Celebrations After Palm Sunday Bombings

Churches in southern Egypt have canceled Easter Sunday celebrations in order to mourn the victims of dual suicide attacks on Palm Sunday. Dozens of worshipers were killed.

Christians in the region have been under attack by ISIS in recent years, suffering more than 40 attacks. According to the State Department, ISIS is waging a genocide on Christians throughout the Middle East and North Africa.
