Egypt faces rough times ahead: four points on the recent ISIS attacks

Description
Written by Dr Gerasimos Tsourapas, Lecturer in Middle East Politics. In the most brutal attack against the Egyptian Coptic Christian minority in recent memory, ISIS bombed two churches on 9 April. At least 47 Egyptians were killed in Alexandria and Tanta, a small town in the Nile Delta. ISIS claimed responsibility for planting an explosive device under a seat at Tanta's Saint George's Church and for the suicide bombing at Alexandria's Saint Marks' Coptic Orthodox Cathedral – a few hours later. What does this mean for ISIS, the post-2011 Egypt, and its Coptic community, the largest Christian minority in the Middle East?
