The world reacts to mosque bombing in Egypt

Social media, news media, Donald Trump, and FC Barcelona all react to the attack on the Bir al-Abed mosque on Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

    #PrayforEgypt and Sinai are trending in Egypt and around the world. The top tweet in Egypt right now is of this picture, posted by the goalkeeper of FC Barcelona.

    The attack dominated the front page of the New York Daily News. "Mosque Massacre" was all it said with the image that is circulating online as the main image of this attack.

    Trump condemned the attack and in the same tweet said, "We Need the WALL, need the BAN! God bless the people of Egypt."

    The mostly sarcastic responses to his tweet then dominated most of the conversation. In a rebuttal, a magazine editor said, "True, a wall along the Mexican/American border is the logical response to a terror attack in Egypt."
