CCTV: The horrifying moment a suicide bomber blows up Egypt church

A video released by Egypt's Interior Ministry showed the moment a suspected suicide bomber attacked a Coptic cathedral in Alexandria on April 9. The bomber, wearing a brown jacket with a blue sweater tied over his shoulders, is seen walking up to the cathedral's gate and is refused entry. He then walked to a metal detector at the gate's entrance before an explosion erupted.

Egypt's Ministry of Health said 16 people were killed, including three police officers, and 41 injured. The explosion came just hours after a bombing rocked a Coptic church in Tanta, killing at least 27 people and injuring 78. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks.
