Remembering Egypt’s Palm Sunday bombings
Five years ago, two suicide bombers targeted Egypt’s Coptic Christian minority in twin deadly attacks on church services. The Palm Sunday blasts in 2017 left 45 worshippers dead and more than 120 injured. For this week’s Newscast we’re diving back into the Premier archive to bring you a fascinating and tragic documentary exploring the impact the Palm Sunday bombings have had on Egypt’s embattled Copts. Premier’s Eno Adeogun travelled to Egypt to make this on an earlier anniversary of the atrocity, and we’re really pleased to share it with Newscast listeners now.
