Two bombs went off followed by a gun attack on a mosque in Egypt’s North Sinai province on Friday, killing at least 235 people, according to state media.

What is believed to be the deadliest terror attack in the history of Egypt, occurred during Friday prayers at Al-Rawda mosque in the town of Bir al-Abed, near al-Arish.

Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi addressed the population in a lengthy speech declaring three days of mourning.
