Christian-owned stores attacked in Egypt
Catholic World News - March 20, 2013
A crowd of up to 2,000 Muslim residents of a southern Egyptian village attacked Christian-owned stores following rumors that a young Muslim woman was kidnapped and forced to convert to Christianity.
The province’s chief prosecutor said that there was no evidence linking Christians to the young woman’s disappearance, and security forces guarded area churches.
