Days ahead of New Year's Eve, Egypt witnessed a deadly attack on the Coptic church of the Great Martyr Mina in Helwan, Cairo suburbs, during Christmas ceremonies on Friday.

It was not clear if the three reported dead included the attacker, or how many attackers were involved.

Local reports said there was a second attacker, and claimed that policemen were among the victims.

Islamist militants have claimed several attacks on Egypt's large Christian minority in recent years, including two bombings on Palm Sunday in April and a blast at Cairo's largest Coptic cathedral in December 2016 that killed 28 people.

Two other bombs were defused near the church.

"There are two issues, one is the political crisis in Egypt which unfolded after 2013".

Five people were wounded, including another police officer, Health Ministry spokesman Khaled Megahed said.

Cellphone footage posted on social media appeared to show gunman barely conscious, as people restrained his arms and then handcuffed him. "There was more than one attacker", Mohammed Hussein Abdelhadi, who lives close to the church, told Reuters.

Egypt imposed a state of emergency following the church attacks and shootings, and President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi demanded the army quell the jihadists with "brutal force" following the mosque massacre.

The assailant had earlier opened fire at the nearby store owned by a Christian, the Interior Ministry said. It is centered in the turbulent northern part of Sinai but has also carried out attacks in the mainland.
