The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack.

According to Egyptian media reports, the gunman was killed in fighting with police at St Mina's Church in Helwan.

One attacker was killed and his explosives belt defused, while another gunman managed to escape. Two policemen died responding to the attack, preventing the armed terrorist from entering the church. The group and its affiliates have previously claimed responsibility in several attacks on the minority Christians in other parts of the country.which occurred shortly after the army announced the death of six soldiers and three gunmen in separate armed confrontations in the Sinai Peninsula and Beni Sueif province.

US President Donald Trump stressed his country's full solidarity with Egypt in its war against terrorism in a phone call with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi hours after Friday's terrorist attack on a Coptic church south of Cairo, which killed nine and injured five, a statement by the Egyptian Presidency read. The local ISIS terrorist branch has claimed responsibility for numerous attacks leading to their deaths. One gunman was shot dead by security forces.

Egypt's Health Ministry spokesman says at least nine people, including eight Coptic Christians, have been killed in a shootout outside a south Cairo church.

The assailant had earlier opened fire at the nearby store owned by a Christian, the ministry said.

A gunman clashed with police outside a Coptic church in Cairo on Friday after trying to break through security barriers protecting the site.

The officials said a gunman opened fire outside a Coptic church before he was shot dead himself.

A video posted on social media purports to show Ismail roaming a deserted street before being struck by gunfire.

The gunman was wounded and arrested, according to the Interior Ministry and church officials. Authorities have closed off the area around the church.
