Footage from the scene of Sunday’s bombing inside a Coptic cathedral in Cairo shows tragic scenes of the aftermath of the attack.

People can be seen assembling the body parts of victims, which were then transported to the nearby Ain Shams University Hospital.

According to witnesses, the explosion occurred in an area dedicated to women worshippers, resulting in many of the victims being identified as women and children.

On Friday, two roadside bombs - one in Cairo and one north of the capital - killed six policemen and wounded six others.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack on the cathedral.
