Christian homes burned down in Egyptian village
Catholic World News - July 18, 2013
Four Coptic Christians were murdered and 23 homes were looted and burned down in a recent Islamist attack on Christians in Dabaaya, a village in southern Egypt.
Police looked on as the incidents took place, according to witnesses.
“The screams of the women inside” the Coptic church “echo[ed] throughout the place,” according to a reporter for MidEast Christian News. “We entered to see the victims wearing black clothes and lying on the ground, some crying and others screaming, and some simply not moving, tired of the pain and suffering.”
