At Least 13 Killed in Cairo after Christian-Muslim Clash
Although Christians and Muslims were united in anti-government protests just a few weeks ago, an altercation between the two groups yesterday left 13 people dead. The Chrisitan Post reports that 90 others were injured in the sectarian violence Wednesday as Christians protested the burning a church 18 miles south of Cairo this weekend. About 500 Copts were reportedly on their way to join another protest over the burned church when thousands of Muslims, allegedly carrying weapons and automatic guns, stopped them en route. Eyewitnesses report that the conflict escalated until the military arrived, and that the military ultimately fired live ammunition at the Coptic side. “We were at one side and the Muslim on the other, we have hundreds of injured at the Coptic side,” said an eyewitness. “The Muslims were also shooting from behind the army tanks.”
