Terrorist attack on Copts in Egypt
The Australian Embassy in Cairo is monitoring the situation closely
The Australian Government is appalled by the brutal attack on a group of Coptic Christians in Egypt on 26 May, killing many including children.
This follows the deeply troubling Palm Sunday bombings of churches and other attacks on Egyptian civilians and security forces.
Our sympathies at this time are with the victims and their families and with the people of Egypt.
The Australian Embassy in Cairo is monitoring the situation closely.
