Mubarak may have engineered killing of Copts, Catholic prelate theorizes
Catholic World News - February 23, 2011
Deposed Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak may have orchestrated the January 1 massacre of Coptic Christians, the country’s leading Catholic prelate has suggested.
Coptic Catholic Patriarch Antonios Naguib told the Italian monthly 30 Giorni that Mubarak’s regime might have planned the brutal attack on Christians, as a pretext for imposing new security controls to prop up his government. He said that the regime had often used anti-Christian violence as an excuse for crackdowns on political opponents.
