3 churches attacked in Egypt

Catholic World News - July 29, 2013

Three Coptic Orthodox churches in Minya, a city of 250,000 in north-central Egypt, were attacked on July 27, an English-language Egyptian newspaper reported.

“They threw Molotov cocktails at Al-Azraa and Anba Ebram churches but were not able to break in as nearby Muslims and Christians were securing the churches,” said Ishak Ibrahim, of the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, who added that an attempted attack on a third Minya church was repelled.
