(ABC) At least 235 people have been killed in an attack on a mosque during Friday prayers in Northern Sinai in Egypt according to Egyptian state news agency MENA. 130 more people have been reported injured in the attack.

The attack began with a bombing at the mosque after which gunmen began to open fire on the crowd.

A local resident present at the hospital where victims were being taken described the wounded arriving via ambulance and private vehicles at a rate beyond the capacity of the hospital which is approximately 30 miles away from the mosque.

President Donald Trump commented on the attack via Twitter Friday morning stating that it was a "horrible and cowardly terrorist attack on innocent and defenseless worshipers."

The President added that "the world cannot tolerate terrorism, we must defeat them militarily and discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence!"
