Egypt: mob prevents reopening of church
Catholic World News - May 25, 2011
Hurling stones at Coptic Christians, thousands of Muslims surrounded a Coptic church in Ain Shams, a suburb of Cairo, to prevent its reopening. The church, built in 2004, was closed by state security officials in 2008 after a protest by 3,000 Muslims.
