Australia's Copts seek expulsion of Egyptian ambassador
October 11, 2011
Australian’s Coptic Christian leaders have called for the expulsion of Egypt’s ambassador, in the wake of a massacre of Copts in Cairo.
Bishop Anba Suriel, who leads the community of about 70,000 Australian Copts, charged that Ambassador Omar Metwally told him to be silent about the violence against Copts in Egypt. Bishop Suriel urged Australian political leaders to ignore that advice, and condemn the killings.
