A small Palestinian group linked to al-Qaeda was behind the New Year’s Day bomb attack on a church in Alexandria in which 23 people died, Egypt says.
Interior Minister Habib al-Adli said Cairo had “decisive proof” that the Army of Islam carried out the attack in the northern Egyptian city.
The Gaza-based group immediately denied any responsibility for the attack.
Officials in Egypt have so far released very few details how they believe the attack was carried out.
