Families of Egypt bomb victims blame Mubarak

A year after New Year's Eve church bombing in Alexandria, many point to former government as culprits.



    The bombing of a Coptic Church in the Egyptian city of Alexandria last New Year's Eve left 21 people dead and divided communities along sectarian lines.

    The government of former President Hosni Mubarak blamed the Salafists, an ultra-conservative Islamic sect.

    But others believe the former interior minister was involved. So far no one has been prosecuted for the attack.
