The Islamic State (ISIS) released its first video from Egypt separate from “Sinai Province,” featuring footage of the suicide bomber who struck the St. Mark's Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in December 2016, and threatening Christians in the country with more similar attacks.
The 20-minute video which emerged on Monday threatened to conduct attacks on Christian minority population saying they were the the extremist group's "favorite prey."
The footage showed Abu Abdullah al-Masri, who killed nearly 30 people, mainly women, when he attacked a Cairo church in December where the narrator says the attack was "only the beginning."
Egypt's Coptic Christians, who makes up around 10 percent of the population, have been increasingly targeted by Muslim extremists since the 2013 military overthrow of an Islamist president.
