Christian protestors attacked in Egypt
Catholic World News - May 18, 2011
Coptic Christians in Cairo who were protesting recent attacks on churches were themselves attacked by a mob as riot police watched, according to press reports. The mob threw gasoline bombs and rocks at the Christian protestors. “The Christians are under organized attack by Muslim extremists, who have been emboldened since the fall of President Mubarak,” said Car Moeller, president of Open Doors USA. “And the army and security forces have been slow to respond to the attacks.”
