ISIS have claimed responsibility for Sunday's deadly Cairo Coptic cathedral bombing that killed 25 people and injured 35 on Tuesday.

Suicide bomber Abu Abdallah al-Masri carried out Sunday's attack, the group said in the statement, one day after authorities named the bomber as Mahmoud Shafik Mohamed Mostafa.

The bomber “got in between the crowd” and detonated his explosive belt, the extremist group said in the statement.

The group said it would continue attacks against “every infidel and apostate in Egypt, and everywhere.”
