Nineteen suspected jihadists linked to a deadly attack on Coptic Christians in central Egypt have been killed in a shootout with police, the interior ministry said Sunday.

Those killed in the exchange of fire were part of a cell that left dead seven Coptic pilgrims in Friday's attack in Minya province, a statement by the ministry said.
