A gunman has killed nine people after twin attacks on a bookshop and church south of Cairo.
The attack was the latest on the country’s Coptic Christian minority by suspected terrorists.
The fanatic, armed with an assault rifle, 150 rounds of ammunition and a bomb, went on the rampage outside Mar Mina church in the capital before being shot himself as he tried to storm the building.
Footage posted on social media appeared to show the bearded man wearing a bulky ammunition vest sprawled on a street, barely conscious, as people restrained his arms and then handcuffed him.
The gunman, already wanted over attacks on police, first targeted a Coptic owned bookshop killing two before moving on to the church and slaughtering seven more.
Dramatic footage captured a gunfight outside the church and shows what is believed to be the jihadist walking around with his assault rifle.
It comes in the wake of a series of massacres at Coptic Christian churches carried out by ISIS in recent years.
