Egypt's Coptic Christians targeted by Islamic State group

The Pope's visit to Egypt comes at a particularly tense time for the country's Coptic Christians, who are regularly targeted by the Islamic State group. Based in North Sinai, the terrorists recently claimed responsibility for two Palm Sunday church bombings that claimed 45 lives. Despite ongoing military operations since September 2013, the IS group has expanded its territory. Our reporters went to meet some of Egypt's Coptic Christians, a community living in fear.

A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett and Laura Burloux.
