Egypt: 6 Christians killed in drive-by shooting at church
January 07, 2010
At least six Coptic Christians have been slain in a drive-by shooting in Naj Hammadi, Egypt, as they were leaving the nighttime Christmas liturgy. Most Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox Christians follow the Julian calendar and celebrate Christmas on January 7 this year.
The violence reportedly took place in retaliation for the alleged rape of a Muslim woman by a Christian man in November.
