The Egyptian Interior Ministry has announced that nineteen militants allegedly linked to the anti-Coptic attack that killed seven people on Friday in Minya, central Egypt, were killed in an exchange of “Gun shots” with the police.

The alleged militants were found following the pursuit of terrorist elements involved in the implementation of hostile operations in the country, including the latest armed attack targeting citizens on their return from the monastery of Saint-Samuel.

At least seven people were killed and seven injured on Friday in an attack claimed by the Islamic State IS group in a bus carrying Coptic Christian worshipers near the monastery of St. Samuel in the desert of Minya province.
