Egypt, fire in a Coptic church in Giza: at least 41 dead

According to reports from security sources, the fire originated from the electrical panel. The toll of people killed by the flames and smoke and death in the crowd could worsen

At least 41 people died as a result of a fire that broke out in a Coptic church in Giza, Egypt. Hundreds of faithful insides are fleeing. This was reported by the local ecclesiastical authorities. Egypt’s health ministry separately reported that some of the 55 people initially given for injuries have lost their lives. The budget therefore appears destined to grow.

According to reports from security sources, the fire originated from the electrical panel during the religious service. It is not clear how many people were killed by the flames and smoke and how many perished in the crowd.
