Egypt’s Coptic Christian leaders frustrated by ‘reconciliation meeting’
April 16, 2013
Following recent incidents of violence against Egypt’s Coptic Christian minority, Coptic leaders said that the government’s decision to host a “reconciliation meeting” rang hollow without the arrests of perpetrators.
“Our Christian faith is based on peace and reconciliation,” said Coptic Orthodox Bishop Pachomios of Beheira, but such meetings are only useful if “assailants are brought to justice and punished by the government.”
