Egyptian television channels have broadcasted CCTV footage they say is of a suicide bomber responsible for one of Sunday's church bombings.

The two clips show a man wearing a blue sweater draped over his shoulders approaching the main gate to St. Mark's cathedral in Alexandria, before being turned away and directed toward a nearby metal detector.

The man then passes a female police officer chatting to another woman and enters the metal detector before an explosion engulfs the area.

At least 43 people and more than 100 others were injured in the attacks on the churches in Alexandria and Tanta claimed by ISIS.
