The deadly blast outside an Egyptian Church in Alexandria was condemned by representatives from Egypt's entire political spectrum, governments worldwide and international organizations. The attack which left 26 dead and close to 100 injured has been blamed on foreign entities while Al-Qaida has claimed responsibility.
Opposition groups and protestors blamed the government for its inability to protect its people and provide enough security stressing that its 3 decade emergency law failed to live up to its alleged purpose.
The attack prompted opposition groups to collaborate and form a national committee to promote civil rights. Leaders from the Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Wafd Party, Al-Ghad, Al-Tagammu, Al-Gabha Party, Al-Wasat Party and the Kefaya Movement for Change met at Al-Wafd's headquarters on Saturday to declare a united stand against the attack.
Nationwide requests urged the significance of a solid, unified response to the terrorist attacks
