    Egypt under emergency after Coptic church blasts

    Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi has declared a three-month state of emergency in response to the deaths of at least 43 people in two church bombings during Palm Sunday services.

    Soldiers have also been deployed across the country to help police keep important landmarks secure.

    There is a reported claim by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group for both attacks.

    Al Jazeera's Victoria Gatenby explains.
