CAIRO (Reuters) - Islamic State was responsible for two church bombings in Egypt on Sunday that killed at least 36 and injured over 100, the group’s news agency Amaq said.

“A group that belongs to Islamic State carried out the two attacks on the churches in the cities of Tanta and Alexandria,” Amaq said.
