Egypt mosque attack death toll rises to 235

Not less than 235 people are now reportedly dead following suspected militants setting off a bomb and opening fire at a mosque in northern Sinai province, health ministry spokesperson says.

There are fears that the death toll, which rose from 85 to 235, could rise further. World leaders have condemned the attack and sent their condolences to Egypt. US President Donald Trump, British Prime Minister, Theresa May, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and more have all taken to Twitter to condemn the terrorist attack.

The US Embassy in Egypt has also spoken out over today's attack that has so far claimed 235 victims. If confirmed, the 235 figure would make this attack the deadliest in Egypt's modern history.
