At least 200 people have been killed after suspected militants set off a bomb and opened fire at a mosque in Egypt's restive northern Sinai province.

The attack on Friday targeted supporters of the security forces attending prayers there, two eyewitnesses and a security source said.

Eyewitnesses at Al Rawdah mosque in Bir al-Abed, near Arish city, told local media ambulances rushed to take the wounded to nearby hospitals.




- Suspected militants set off a bomb and opened fire at a mosque in northern Sinai province
- At least 200 people dead, health ministry spokesperson says
- No claim of responsibility, but Egyptian military has been fighting Isis insurgency in Sinai for three years




The attack is the largest single targeting of Egyptian civilians and the first on a large mosque congregation since the Isis affiliate began its campaign of violence against the state following the military's 2013 overthrow of an elected but divisive Islamist president.



Update: 200 deads and 125 wounded.

Shiites vs Sunnis I wonder? God, what a brutal and merciless attack... praying for all those affected.

May the people responsible be forever haunted for this. Evil, disgusting human beings to do something like this...

Militants instead of Terrorist label? Why is that?

Egypt is under western control. No need for a war on terror there...

God be with the victims and their families.

May those innocents rest in everlasting peace and may their families find peace also one day...

Can we stop using imaginary words such as god please...? If he/she really existed this type of crap would not happen to innocents...

This type of crap only happens because people are brainwashed into believing that an imaginary entity exists...

In my opinion...

Sadly

Well, that is YOUR interpretation of God. Mine is a different thing.

Not a he/she person who let people do bad or good things.

This is called counsciousness and morale.

When I saw the report earlier the toll was put at 80 , the new figure of 155 dead is a shocking number and once again shows that it is Muslims who are suffering the real fallout from Islamic extremism.

What pond life they are to attack people worshiping the same God they worship at a place of worship , what justification can there be for such an act of barbarity , this isn't about religion but a warped ideology.

Ban religion and we will kill each other over nationality, skin color and ressources. Violence is not a Muslim thing. Who do we ban for illegal bombing of Iraq and Libya? Cut the moral high ground crap. US/UK intelligence agencies and military industry are responsible for more deaths than isis and alqaida together multiplied by a million.
But muh Muslims

The civil war within Islam is nothing new, but the violence is escalating. This is horrific.

What a horrific attack.

My thoughts go out to all of those affected.

May those responsible be caught and dealt with swiftly.

Horrible vile act. Sinai seems to be hard to rid of terrorist scum. You'd think it be easier there with the less dense population. Must have quite the support network there.

Apparently the Saudis are upset that Egypt did not join them in their anti-Iran crusade.

May justice be served to the guilty.
