Egypt security kills 19 militants following attack on Coptic Christians

(CNN)The Egyptian interior ministry said Sunday that its forces killed 19 militants who it says were involved in Friday’s deadly attack on Christian worshipers in the southern province of Minya.

The ministry said the men were killed in a shootout in a mountainous area in the western part of the province. Security forces tracked the men back to that area following the attack that killed seven Coptic Christian worshipers on their way to a monastery, the ministry said.
The ministry posted pictures of bodies it claimed were dead militants and the weapons found in their possession.
