One Egyptian was killed and three others were injured in a bomb attack against a Coptic Orthodox church in Libya’s Mesrata City late Saturday.

Pope Timothy Beshara Adly of Libya’s Egyptian Orthodox Church reported the bombing to the Egyptian embassy early Sunday, according to state-run news agency MENA.

Adly reported that two unknown assailants had thrown a handmade grenade at the church’s service centre late Saturday.

Libyan authorities are still investigating the attack.

On New Year’s eve in 2011, Egypt witnessed one of the most violent and shocking attacks against its Christian population, when the Two Saints Coptic Orthodox church was bombed in Alexandria leaving twenty three people dead.

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
