Photo essay on Coptic Christians

Catholic World News - November 30, 2012

Mother Jones has published a photo essay on Coptic Christians and the violence they face in Egypt.

“Since the toppling of Hosni Mubarak, acts of aggression and violence, in addition to long-running discrimination and neglect, have instilled fear in the Coptic community regarding their prospects for a peaceful existence,” the publication, which is known for its political liberalism, reported.

“Says Kerolus Dawood, a 22-year-old survivor of the All Saints Coptic Church bombing in Alexandria in January 2011: ‘One of the worst memories of that day was watching the blood of my family being washed down the sewers.’”
