IS suicide bomber

Pope and Egypt's Coptic patriarch pray at IS-bombed church


Pope Francis

In a Cairo church bombed by the Islamic State group just months ago, Pope Francis and the Coptic Orthodox patriarch sat side by side today and prayed near tangible reminders of the horrific attack.

The emotional mass came as the Catholic pontiff visits Egypt to support the country's embattled Christian minority and promote dialogue with Muslims.

Francis and Coptic Pope Tawadros II sat near the altar of Saint Peter and Saint Paul church where an IS suicide bomber killed 29 people in December.
