On Dec. 11, 2016, a massive bomb exploded during a church service at St. Peter and St. Paul's Church, which is located adjacent to the famed St. Mark's Cathedral in the Egyptian capital of Cairo. An explosive device, containing 26 pounds of TNT, was detonated as Coptic Christians gathered to worship. It killed 29 people and injured an additional 47.
"They wanted to destroy the innocent lives of people praying, at a time [when] we are facing great economic challenges," Andrea Zaki, president of the Protestant Churches of Egypt, told Christianity Today at the time.
"Now they want to hit our unity. But this is a time of solidarity, as we stand with the Orthodox Church and our country."
