Pope Francis Visits Egypt
Various Locations, Egypt
Pope Francis pays a two-trip pilgrimage to Egypt on 28 to 29 April 2017, amid tight security.
His visit to Cairo comes in the wake of twin suicide bombings of Coptic churches in the Nile Delta on Palm Sunday, killing 44 people, and an attack on a police checkpoint near the centuries-old Saint Catherine's Monastery a week later.
