Eight Coptic Christians were among those killed.
At least nine people were killed and 10 others were injured on Friday in a terrorist attack on a church in the south Cairo suburb of Helwan, local DMC broadcaster reported citing the Health Ministry.
The interior ministry said in a statement in the afternoon that it arrested an attacker who attempted to drive through security forces outside the church armed with a machinegun, ammunition and a bomb that he meant to detonate in the church.
On Friday night, bodies of the six victims from the bloody attack arrived at the district's archbishopric for the official funeral, covered with Egyptian flags and were received by their families, while a number of official figures were present.
Security forces reportedly shot and killed one of the attackers who was carrying an undetonated explosive belt after an exchange of fire and another was arrested. Gerges said he was walking in a nearby street when the shooting happened.
Also, the Italian Embassy in Egypt strongly condemned Friday's heinous attack in Helwan.
