Copts protest official's decision to destroy church building
Catholic World News - March 02, 2011
Thousands of Coptic Orthodox Egyptians joined in a protest demonstration after the governor of the Minya province ordered the destruction of building owned by a Coptic church.
The building, a clinic that provides services to the elderly, disabled, and children in the Minya region, south of Cairo, was opened just 4 years ago, and had all the necessary legal permissions, Copts report. In their protests, the Copts shouted slogans suggesting that the governor had accepted bribes to order its destruction.
