    At least seven people were killed and 24 wounded after an explosive device went off near a Coptic Christian Church early on Saturday, a local police source said.

    The explosion occurred after New Year Mass as the worshippers were leaving a church in Alexandria when one of cars in the parking lot near the church exploded.

    Adel Ali Labib, the governor of the Alexandria region, said that angered Christian worshippers began casting stones at a nearby mosque beginning a rampage.
