    Mass slaughter in an Egyptian Mosque

    Suspected Islamist militants have launched a bomb and gun attack on a mosque in Egypt's North Sinai province, killing nearly 200 people, Egyptian state media has said. The death toll is still rising.

    Witnesses say the al-Rawda mosque in the town of Bir al-Abed, roughly 40km west of the provincial capital of El-Arish, was targeted during Friday prayers.

    Local police said men in four off-road vehicles opened fire on worshippers. In a region with a long and horrific history of terrorist slaughter, this counts as one of the worst. Only the butchery of the Algerian civil war in the 1990s is comparable.

    Why do some people still continue to insist there's nothing wrong with Islam why.

    Imagine the hatred ingrained by those who committed this atrocity.
    Absolutely horrific.

    Probably the wrong kind of Sunni. The Sunni-Shia divide isn't a big thing in Egypt - probably because there aren't many Shiites there.
