The death toll from an attack on a mosque in Egypt’s Sinai on Friday rose to 184, state television reported. At least 125 were wounded, the report said.
A bomb explosion ripped through the Rawda mosque roughly 40 kilometres west of the North Sinai capital of El-Arish before gunmen opened fire on the worshippers gathered for weekly Friday prayers, officials said.
“They were shooting at people as they left the mosque,” a local resident whose relatives were at the scene said. “They were shooting at the ambulances too.”
