Police office dies after trying to diffuse bomb in Church

A policeman identified as Mustafa Abid, who was a specialist in mine clearing sacrificed his life in a church in Egypt after he was trying to dismantle an explosive device outside a Coptic church in Egypt on Saturday.

According to reports, two other officers were also wounded in the explosion as security personnel attempted to defuse the device in Nasr City on the edge of Cairo.

Coptic Christians, who account for around 10 percent of Egypt’s population, have been targeted in a string of attacks by the Islamic State group in recent years.
