“Churches In Egypt Halt All Activities For Remainder Of July Amid Terror Threat,” by Joshua Gill, Daily Caller News Foundation, July 14, 2017 (thanks to the Geller Report):

Egyptian churches announced Thursday they will suspend all church activities for the remainder of July per warnings of looming terrorist attacks.

The Evangelical, Coptic Orthodox, and Catholic churches agreed to halt services, conferences, and any church trips to protect their congregations after Egyptian security forces warned them of impending Islamic terrorist attacks, according to a Friday report from Egyptian Streets.

“The decision was taken by the three churches after they had consulted security sources,” a church leader told Al-Masry Al-Youm. “It’s important to protect Christians and their gatherings.”

Churches in Alexandria, however, opted instead to continue their services with stricter security, including police checks, private church security checks, and metal detectors, according to Al-Masry Al-Youm
