Religious clashes in Egypt
CAIRO (AP) - In Egypt, flames have lit up downtown Cairo, where
massive clashes raged Sunday, pitting Christians angry over a
recent church attack against Muslims and Egyptian security forces.
At least 24 people are dead and more than 200 injured in the worst
sectarian violence since the uprising that ousted Hosni Mubarak in
The rioting lasted late into the night, bringing out a
deployment of more than 1,000 security forces and armored vehicles
to defend the state television building, where the trouble began.
The clashes spread to nearby Tahrir Square, drawing thousands of
people to the vast plaza that served as the epicenter of the
protests that ousted Mubarak. On Sunday night, they battled each
other with rocks and firebombs, some tearing up pavement for
ammunition and others collecting stones in boxes.
After midnight, mobs roamed downtown streets, attacking cars
they suspected had Christian passengers.
Christians, who make up about 10 percent of Egypt's 80 million
people, blame the country's ruling military council for being too
lenient on those behind a spate of anti-Christian attacks since
Mubarak's ouster. The Coptic Christian minority is particularly
worried about the show of force by ultraconservative Islamists.
