FILE - In this April 10, 2017 file photo, women cry during the funeral for those killed in a Palm Sunday church attack in Alexandria Egypt, at the Mar Amina Church. Egypt is embroiled in a blistering political feud over who speaks for Islam and how to bring reforms to counter Islamic militancy. At the center of it is Al-Azhar, one of the top institutions of clerics in the Muslim world and considered the bastion of moderate Islam. Critics, including Egypt’s pro-government, say it is too tied down in old ways and failing to modernize its teachings, fueling extremism. (AP Photo/Samer Abdallah, File)
