10-year-old victim of Egypt church attack dies; death toll rises to 27
Egypt’s state news agency says a 10-year-old girl who was critically wounded in the suicide bombing at a Cairo church earlier this month, has died of her wounds. The fatality raises the death toll from the attack to 27. Egypt’s Islamic State affiliate has claimed responsibility for the bombing, though authorities blamed the banned Muslim Brotherhood group. The little girl, Maggie Mamoun, became the face of the Coptic community’s grief in the days after the horrific bombing, with photos of the smiling child.
