A gunman opened fire on worshippers and Egyptian security forces stationed outside a Coptic church in a Cairo suburb on Friday and killed at least seven people before he was wounded and arrested, the Interior Ministry said.
The attack began when the gunman tried to break through the security cordon outside the Coptic Church of Mar Mina.
Authorities reported at least nine people dead, among them three police officers.
Egypt's Interior Ministry said one of the two attackers was killed.
A video circulated on social media after the attack apparently shows the gunman lying on the ground.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. The demonstrators shouted anti-Christian slogans and called for the church's demolition, according to the local diocese.
