Egypt's President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi condemned the attacks and summoned the National Defence Council to an urgent session.
"The attack..only harden the determination [of the Egyptian people] to move forward on their trajectory to realise security, stability and comprehensive development," he said in a statement.
The group recently warned it would step up attacks on Egypt's Christians - the jihadis warned in the aftermath of the two bombings, which they claimed were carried out using suicide vests - that further attacks would take place.
It was the latest in a series of assaults on Egypt's Christian minority, which makes up around 10 percent of the population and has been repeatedly targeted by Islamic extremists.
I saw the intestines of those injured and legs severed entirely from their bodies," Vivian Fareeg said.
Grand Sheikh Ahmed el-Tayeb, head of Egypt's Al-Azhar — the leading centre of learning in Sunni Islam — condemned the attack, calling it a "despicable terrorist bombing that targeted the lives of innocents".
Egypt's Interior Ministry said a suicide bomber tried to storm the entrance before being stopped in police.
The ministry said three policemen were among those killed in the attack.
According to Egypt's constitution, parliament must vote in favor of such a declaration — a virtual certainty since it is packed with supporters of the president.
The majority of Egyptians blame women for inciting sexual harassment by claiming that their tight clothing means: "asking for it".
This photo campaign however wants to change this notion by showing that bystanders who witness sexual harassment and do nothing about it are the reason there still is gender-based violence in Egypt.
Back in 2011, Egypt's uprisings put gender-based violence in the spotlight, which prompted the rise of many women's NGOs and campaigns to end sexual harassment.
Unfortunately not much has changed since then and gender-based violence against women, like many places in the world, is still very prevalent in Egypt's public sphere and behind closed doors.
The campaign released powerful images of staged instances of harassment that may occur in public spaces, at the work place or even on public transportation.
