Trump renews call for 'ban' after deadly attack in Egypt

Egypt Sinai: Bomb and gun attack on mosque

They have also targeted followers of the mystical Sufi branch of Sunni Islam as well as Christians.

MENA also said a state of emergency had been declared in Sinai.

Two eyewitnesses and a security source told Reuters that the suspected militants targeted supporters of the security forces attending prayers.

Egypt's reaction: The President vowed to restore security and avenge those killed. The attack was carried by an explosive device on the plane. The attackers also opened fire upon the people as they tried exiting the mosque.

Images from inside the building showed dozens of bodies wrapped in blood-soaked cloth lined up on the carpeted floor.

Osama, who didn't want his last name used, drove one of the first ambulances to the scene. Some victims were also killed by the explosions.

US Vice President Mike Pence also took to the micro-blogging site to express grief and emphasised that one can not allow terror forces to win. Our strength & resolve will overpower their extremist ideology.

CHP conducting maximum enforcement patrols Thanksgiving weekend
As part of the challenge, troopers will be assigned every 20 miles of I-40 from 11 a.m.to 11 p.m. starting Wednesday through Sunday.

The President, who is celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday with his family at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, said earlier Friday that he would be speaking by phone with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan about "bringing peace to the mess that I inherited in the Middle East", Efe news agency reported.

"Egypt is facing terrorism on behalf of the region and the world", Sisi said.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, in a statement following the attack in Egypt, called on the global community to strengthen its efforts to defeat terrorist groups.

Islamist militants have stepped up attacks in Sinai since Egypt's military overthrew the country's Islamist president, Mohamed Morsi, amid a wave of anti-government protests in 2013.

There is no word yet on what happened to the militants involved.

Numerous attacks, some of which were carried out by the local branch of the Islamic State terrorist organization, are aimed at police and security forces in the Sinai Peninsula.

In October 2015, 224 people were killed when a bomb brought down a Russian passenger jet that crashed in the Sinai Peninsula.
