A new video emerged on Facebook showing the moments of the explosion and the horror and terror in front of Al-Qidissin Church during a midnight mass on new year's eve.
Freedom4Copts Youtube Channel has also revealed a video of the joint press conference which included Pope Shnouda III, Patriarch of the Coptic Orthodox Church; Grand Imam Sheikh Ahmad Al-Tayyib, Sheikh of Al-Azhar; Imam Sheikh Dr. Ali Goma`a, Mufti of Egypt; and Minister Mahmoud H. Zaqzouq, Minister of Religious Endowments. The press conference was held in the Coptic Orthodox Cathedral of Saint Mark, the seat of the Holy See of Saint Mark in Abbasiya, Cairo, Egypt which the the two Sheikhs and Minister visited to show solidarity with the Church and express condolences to the Coptic community. The visit was scarred by the chants of angry protesters in the Coptic Orthodox Cathedral who demanded justice, revenge and asked the Pope not to appease the government, Muslims or the Islamic religious establishment.
