The death toll in a bomb attack on a packed mosque in Egypt’s restive North Sinai province has risen to 235.

Gunmen attacked and set off a bomb, killing at least 235 people in one of the country’s deadliest siege in recent memory, state media reported.

A bomb explosion ripped through the Rawda mosque roughly 40 kilometers west of the North Sinai capital of El-Arish before gunmen opened fire on the worshippers gathered for weekly Friday prayers, officials said.
