CBN News has learned the deadly terror attack on Cairo’s Coptic Church of Mar Mina could have been much worse. A senior government official confirmed one of the attackers wore “an explosive belt.” However, Egyptian police prevented the terrorist from detonating the suicide belt.
The official said security forces protected the church from all sides and like other churches in Egypt, the streets around the church are closed. The attack took place when two gunmen on a motorcycle opened fire outside the church, he said.
