DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. April 9, 2017, 2:40 PM (IDT)

At least 25 Christians were killed and more than 50 injured in an explosion at the Coptic St. George’s Church in the town of Tanta 50km north of Cairo. The church was packed with worshippers for the Palm Sunday celebration of the Easter festival. Two hours later, another bomb exploded at the back door of the Coptic cathedral of Alexandria killing at least 6 people and injuring 30. A few minutes before the blast, the Coptic Patriarch Theodorus II left the church.


Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
