A gunman killed two Copts celebrating the New Year in an Egyptian alcohol shop early on Monday, judicial and security sources said, the latest deadly violence against the Christian minority.
The shooting came just three days after a gunman, identified as a wanted jihadist, killed nine people in an attack on a church south of the capital.
An assailant rode up in the back of a motorcycle taxi and opened fire on the liquor store in Cairo's twin city Giza at around 1:30 am (2330 GMT Sunday), when the streets were still bustling with New Year revellers, the sources said.
The store's Coptic owner survived but two of his friends who were celebrating with him were killed.
Police are still investigating the motive of the attack, the sources said....
