Attacks On Churches In Egypt

It's heartbreaking to hear of new attacks on the Coptic community in Egypt. It happened again in Alexandria today. The Associated Press reports:

CAIRO, Egypt - Worshippers at three Christian churches came under attack from knife-wielding assailants during Mass Friday. Police said one worshipper was killed and more than a dozen wounded in the simultaneous attacks in the northern city of Alexandria.

Police were searching for three men, one in each attack.

Hundreds of Christians gathered in angry protest outside the Coptic Christian churches, and witnesses said clashes erupted between Christians and Muslims.


This is very depressing. I'm worried about Iraqi Christians during this holy week. Now, I have to worry about Egyptian Christians too.

Arabist Network has more details on this new attack.
