President Abdel Fattah al Sisi convened an emergency security meeting soon after the attack, state television reported.

The country's state-run MENA news agency said that 85 people have died and 80 were injured in what it described as a "terrorist incident", citing "official sources.".

A Health Ministry official told Al Jazeera TV that "there were many people inside the mosque - it's only a small mosque".

State media showed images of bloodied victims and bodies covered with blankets inside the Al Rawdah mosque in Bir al-Abed, west of the city of El Arish, Reuters reported.

The target: The mosque is known for being the birthplace of Sheikh Eid al-Jariri, a Sufi cleric considered the founder of Sufism in the Sinai Peninsula.

The explosion was followed by gunfire from unknown militants who stationed ahead of the mosque's gates.

Gunment shot worshippers fleeing the initial attack, he added.

Woman with 'f*** Trump' sticker on her truck is arrested
The discussion began after Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls posted a photo of the decal Wednesday on Facebook. She said there was "no particular reason" they made a decision to stick the message on the back of the truck.

US President Donald Trump, in a post on Twitter on Friday, called the assault a "horrible and cowardly terrorist attack".

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas also strongly denounced the terror attack, voicing his solidarity with Egypt.

The worldwide community must continue to strengthen its efforts to defeat terrorist groups that threaten the United States and our partners and we must collectively discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence.

After a mosque in Egypt's north Sinai region was attacked on Friday, claiming at least 235 lives, leaders around the globe showered their condolence messages to the families of the victims, asking everyone to stand against the rising terrorism.

At least 155 people have been killed today when suspected militants set off a bomb and opened fire at a mosque in Egypt. "My honest condolences to all those affected by such a barbaric act".

"In this hour of tragedy, the government and the people of India stand by the government and the people of Egypt", he said.

Prime Minister of United Kingdom Theresa May called the attacks "sickening" "evil" and "cowardly".
