In a further call to His Eminence Metropolitan Pachomius he stated the following.
The number of Coptic martyrs is 17 and there are another 5 or 6 which are yet to be identified. All of the bodies have now been removed from the church and are with the coroner awaiting release in order for the funerals to take place.
There are also 58 Copts injured, some in critical condition and some are in intensive care.
May the Lord ease this pain and suffering of His people in Egypt.
