ISIS is taking credit for the deaths of at least 37 people and the injuries to more than 100 others in two separate Palm Sunday bombing attacks at Coptic Christian churches in Egypt.
According to multiple reports, the first blast happened at a church in the Nile Delta town of Tanta, where at least 26 people were killed and 71 others wounded.
Television footage showed the inside of the church, where a large number of people gathered around what appeared to be lifeless, bloody bodies covered with papers.
Videos of the deadly events, and the aftermath, can be viewed below:
