Piers Morgan has criticised the US media for not giving enough coverage to the bombings of two Egyptian churches on Palm Sunday that left more than 40 people dead.

Speaking to Fox News, Morgan said that the latest attack on Egypt’s Coptic Christians was “unbelievably significant” and that ISIS was carrying out “a genocidal attack” on Christianity across the Middle East.

“You know, if you look at what ISIS really stands for, what they are carrying out in the Middle East, and in Egypt in particular, is a kind of genocidal attack on Christians and Christianity,” he said.

“They want Christianity eradicated, and they want to convert all Muslims to their crusade, they want it to be a Holy War, and they want Christians gone.”

He added: “I don’t think that narrative is getting the attention it should get in the American media, and I have to say in other media around the world.”
