Cairo cathedral blast 'a suicide bomb'

The explosion in the Coptic cathedral in Cairo that killed at least 24 people on Sunday was caused by a suicide bomber rather than a planted device, according to Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.

Sisi also revealed the identity of the attacker: Mahmoud Shafeq Mohamed Moustafa, 22.
