Egyptian bishop condemns government crackdown
November 28, 2011
A Coptic Catholic prelate has condemned the latest government crackdown on demonstrators.
“The authorities have no right to shoot peaceful people,“ said Bishop Antonios Aziz Mina of Giza. “The young people, who began the revolution [that led to Mubarak’s downfall], no longer trust people in authority, especially the military. They were full of hope when the revolution began but now no longer.”
“Christians and Muslims are altogether in Tahrir Square now,” he added. “They have the same desire for a new future.”
