Egypt Church ‘Bomber’ Surrenders

A man suspected to be involved in the deadly bombings of Egyptian churches has surrendered, says Mena, a state-run news agency. He is identified as Mahmoud Mohamed Ali Hassan. The bombings, which killed at least 45 people, took place in the cities of Tanta and Alexandria. The report said the suspect was led to the headquarters of the national security agency.

The BBC reported the attack has fuelled safety concern on the planned visit of the Pope Francis on 28 and 29 April.
