The Coptic Christains have been discriminated a lot by the Muslim majority in Egypt and things got worse when Islamists accused the church of backing of the army's over throw of President Mohammed Morsi in July.

One of the priests was shocked to see the church hall covered in a pool of blood. He said that this was clearly a planned attack as Sunday is the most popular day for weddings and that many people could be targeted.

So far no one has come forward and claimed responsibility for the attack.
