Egyptian police stall construction of Coptic church

Catholic World News - November 24, 2010

Egyptian security forces have clashed with Coptic Orthodox faithful at the construction site of a church near the Pyramids in Giza. Human-rights activists charge that local officials are inciting inter-religious disputes.

Construction at the church has been impeded by police, although Coptic officials insist that they have legal authorization for the building project. The site has seen a series of confrontations between security officials and parishioners, who have surrounded the site to protect the church building.
