The Australian Government utterly condemns the attack overnight against worshippers leaving a Christian church after a New Year's mass in the northern Egyptian city of Alexandria, reportedly killing and wounding dozens of people.

We deplore the loss of innocent lives during what should have been a joyful time, and extend our deepest sympathies to all those affected by this tragedy.

The head of the Coptic Orthodox Church in Australia has called for the immediate expulsion of the Egyptian Ambassador and two Egyptian Consuls-General.

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Another barbaric attack on Coptic Christians of Egypt has taken place at 12:20 am on New Year's day, 2011. The attack took place in front of the Al-Kedeseen Church in Sidi Beshr, Alexandria EGYPT.

A Skoda car was suddenly parked in front of the church. The car was full of explosives and a sign in the back window stating, "There is more to come." The bomb was triggered as Coptic faithful were leaving the church after New Year's celebrations.

Tens of Copts have been martyred and many more injured. It is a sad day for the Coptic Church around the world and it is a sad day for Egypt.
