A Coptic Orthodox nun was killed by a stray bullet on July 5 in Egypt, the Fides news service reports.
Sister Athanasia was riding in a car from Cairo to Alexandria, accompanied by a driver and her sisters, when she was struck by bullets. After early reports that the car may have been the target of a terrorist attack, police reported that in fact the shooting appeared to involve a feud between two hostile families.
