Talking heads delve into the background of the Alex church bomber

The talking heads dwelled last night on the Interior Ministry’s announcement of the identity of one of the Palm Sunday attackers and others involved in previous acts of terror.

Kol Youm’s Amr Adib donned his Dr. Phil suit to console alleged Alexandria attacker Mahmoud Hassan Mubarak’s distraught brother, who broke down during the show as he talked about his fears of being targeted by his community in retaliation for his brother’s actions (watch, runtime 7:27).

On Masaa DMC, Osama Kamel hosted the suicide bomber’s wife, who said her husband had been abroad since December and only called to check in on her and their three daughters a few times since (watch, runtime 3:21). She still doesn’t entirely believe that her husband was behind the attack, she said, claiming that the video footage is not very clear (watch, runtime 3:09).

Meanwhile on Al Hayah Al Youm, Tamer Amin hosted Tourism Minister Yehia Rashed, who discussed the ministry’s plan to modernize (watch, runtime 2:01) and its emphasis on digital marketing channels (watch, runtime 5:02).
