Dirty sob's attack people worshiping. All this does is reinforce to Egyptian citizens why they are fighting these cowardly extremist dogs. No community is harmed more by the radicals than those who are moderate and peaceful followers of their religion.

Egypt mosque attack leaves at least 85 dead, 80 wounded

Islamist militants are suspected of orchestrating the attack on a mosque in Egypt’s volatile Sinai Peninsula on Friday, killing at least 85 people and injuring at least 80 others, Egyptian media reported.

The extremists launched an attack on the al-Rawdah mosque in the town of Bir al-Abd, some 25 miles from the North Sinai provincial capital of el-Arish, Egypt's state news agency MENA reported.

The security officers said the men opened fire on worshipers during prayers while driving in off-road vehicles. A Ministry of Health spokesman said the terrorists set off a bomb during the attack.

The victims were reportedly being transported to hospitals to be treated.

The BBC reported Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi will meet with security forces Friday.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
