The Egyptian branch of the ISIS group claimed responsibility for a shooting attack that killed a Coptic priest in the Sinai Peninsula on Thursday.
The extremist group said a "squad" of its gunmen killed the 46-year-old priest for "combating Islam", in a statement posted on social media accounts.
Police and the Coptic Church had said the priest was gunned down in the North Sinai capital of El-Arish while standing next to his car.
