At least 25 people have died and 49 more are injured in the blast, with the number expected to rise, according to Egyptian state television.

The explosion rocked St Peter and St Paul Coptic Orthodox Church within St Mark’s Coptic Cathedral grounds as a Sunday mass was held coinciding with a national holiday in Egypt marking the birth of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.

Police and armoured vehicles filled the streets surrounding the site and crowds gathered in front of the church to call for justice.

Egyptian Prime Minister Sherif Ismail visited the scene as protests broke out in front of the cathedral, with crowds shouting “The people demand the fall of the regime”.

The cathedral is the home of the Coptic Orthodox Church in Egypt and home to its leader, Pope Tawadros II of Alexandria.

The Coptic Orthodox Church is the largest Christian church in Egypt and the Middle East’s biggest Christian community.
