words being echoed out of washington over an over now that the white house is looking at all options when it comes to encountering the north korean nuclear threat. officials are watching closely saying there could be another missile launch soon and could be another nuclear test soon, it is impossible to predict when they will take these types of actions, they are erratic for sure, but there are a couple of high profile events in april including a celebrated day the founder's birthday celebration and officials say that could be a time where you could see provocative action being taken. >> two bloody palm sunday church bombings in egypt with isis

region, he was axed by the government but they say that's just a display. it done provide what the people need as real security and that's because isis is also saying they're going continue these attacks up and through easter and they say that christians have become their favorite prey so a real ominous warning, they declare add thr declared a three month state of emergency, to make arrests and hold people indefinitely though it has been criticized by human rights groups, but these are intense times, there was another bombing in cairo that killed a dozen people, an we see these slowly increase since yesterday's attack and there's a lot of concern among the
