Pope Francis has expressed his solidarity with Egypt’s Coptic Christians, calling those massacred in an attack on a bus carrying pilgrims “martyrs”.

The Pontiff led thousands of people in prayer for the 29 victims, who he said were killed in “another act of ferocious violence” after having refused to renounce their Christian faith at gunpoint.
