CWN Editor's Note: Shouting “Allahu akbar” (Allah is the greatest) and “we don’t want any church in our village,” a crowd threw stones at a Coptic church and at Christian homes in a village in Minya Governorate (map). Egypt, a nation of 97 million, is 90% Muslim (predominantly Sunni) and 10% Christian (primarily Coptic Orthodox).
