At Least 6 Dead in Egyptian Sectarian Violence
CNN – At least six people were killed and 120 injured in sectarian clashes outside a church in Cairo on Saturday, officials said.
A group of Muslim Salafists attacked the Saint Mena Coptic Orthodox Church. Gunfire rang out as people sprinted for cover.
The clashes were sparked by reports of a Christian woman who married a Muslim man and was allegedly being held inside the church.
Nearby, firefighters responded to a blaze at the Saint Virgin Mary’s Coptic Orthodox Church. Hundreds of residents stood outside as it burned and two men were seen jumping from a window of the building.
