Explosion in front of church in Alexandria, Egypt, state television reports

CAIRO (Reuters) - A blast in front of a Christian church in Alexandria, Egypt on Sunday has injured several people, state news reported.

The explosion comes just hours after a bombing rocked a Coptic church in Egypt’s Nile Delta, killing at least 25 people and injuring 60.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for either blast and their causes remain unknown.
