#Islamics slaughter a busload of #Christians in Egypt

A bus carrying Christians to a monastery south of Cairo was targeted in a bloody attack Friday,.

Egyptian state television reported that 23 were killed and 25 wounded in the attack in Minya, a Christian enclave 138 miles south of the capital.

Human rights groups were reporting an even higher death toll.

Christians make up about a tenth of Egypt’s population of 92 million. As Islamic State’s influence has expanded in Egypt, Minya, home to the country’s largest Coptic Christian community, has been a flashpoint in recent months for attacks by Muslim extremists against Coptic Christians.

It’s how the Islamics roll.
