Scores killed in Egypt mosque attack

More than 200 people have been killed in a gun and bomb attack on a mosque in Egypt’s northern Sinai province. Officials said militants in four vehicles opened fire on mainly Sufi worshippers during Friday prayers, blocking off escape routes by blowing up cars. Egypt’s President pledged to respond with “brutal force”. A warning: there are some disturbing images of the attack and its aftermath in this report.
