Copts meet with Egyptian premier, discuss assaults

March 08, 2011

Egypt's Prime Minister Essam Sharaf has met with Coptic Christians whose church was burned down by a Muslim mob, and promised to restore security and help rebuild the church.

Although the Egyptian government has not yet taken any action to follow up on Sharaf's promises, a spokesman for the Coptic Church notes that this was an unprecedented meeting between a prime minister and Christian protesters.
