Mob torches Christian homes in Egypt

June 27, 2011

Amid rumors that a church was being constructed, a mob of 200 Muslims looted and burned eight Coptic Christian homes in the village of Awlad Khalaf, Egypt, according to the Assyrian International News Agency.

“The Muslims,” said Father Weesa Azmy, a local Coptic priest, “decided to play God and take the law into their own hands; they attacked the construction site and other Christian homes.”
