  • Egypt says police kill 19 jihadist suspects linked to Copt attack

Egypt says security forces have killed 19 militants in a shootout, including the gunmen suspected of killing seven Christians in an attack on pilgrims traveling to a remote monastery.

The suspects were killed in a gunfight in the desert of Minya province in central Egypt after security forces pursued them, the ministry said in a statement on Sunday.

The ministry published photographs purporting to show the bodies of the slain militants, as well as rifles, shotguns and pistols.

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the Minya attack, which occurred on Friday, though it provided no evidence of its involvement.

El-Sissi led the 2013 overthrow of an elected but divisive Islamist president and has since waged a sweeping crackdown on dissent, jailing thousands of Islamists and other activists.

Those killed in the exchange of fire were part of a cell that left dead seven pilgrims in Friday's attack in Minya province, a statement by the ministry said.

Christians make up around 10 percent of Egypt's 97 million predominantly Muslim population.

ISIS also killed more than 40 people in twin church bombings in April 2017, and an ISIS gunman last December killed nine people in an attack on a church in a south Cairo suburb.

Friday's attack was the latest in a string of assaults against the minority Coptic community.

"I pray for the victims, pilgrims killed just because they were Christian", he added.
