A bomb blast has killed at least 25 people during Sunday mass inside a Cairo church near the main Coptic Christian cathedral, according to Egyptian state TV .
The explosion ripped through St Peter's Church at around 10:00am local time, wounding at least another 49 people, according to Egyptian health ministry cited on state TV.
St Peter's Church is beside St Mark's Cathedral, which is the seat of Egypt's Orthodox Christian church and is home to the office of its spiritual leader, Pope Tawadros II.
Services were being held in St Peter's on Sunday morning, while St Mark's Cathedral was being renovated.
A state-run news agency reported that a bomb was lobbed inside the church, though the AP news agency cited witnesses saying the bomb was planted inside the building itself.
