After more than a week away from the papal seat at St Mark’s Cathedral in Cairo, Pope Tawadros II, who was expected back tomorrow, made a surprise comeback this afternoon and directly rushed to hospital to visit those who were injured in the recent attacks against the Copts. 
The Pope’s absence during the period following the attacks against the Copts in the Cairo district of Khusous and at St Mark’s Cathedral last week—especially after his conspicuous non-appearance following news that he would be presiding over the funeral service for the victims last Sunday, gave rise to conjectures and fears that he was under threat.
The patriarchal deputy Fr Sergius told Watani the Pope will tomorrow receive the families of the seven Copts who lost their lives in the attacks. 
On Tuesday, Pope Tawadros will receive condolences for the deaths of the Copts.
