CAIRO, Egypt (Worthy News)– As the whole world watched Muslims protesting in the streets of Egypt, more than 15 Christians were killed outside Al-Minya, 150 miles south of Cairo.
“With no police available, no one was willing to help them,” said Tom Doyle, Middle East director for E3 Partners. “Family members are taking turns keeping watch over their homes, as robberies, rape, looting, and car theft are occurring routinely now.”
Under Egypt’s constitution, Christians are allowed to practice their faith, but Muslim extremists still managed to murder 23 Christians and injure 70 more when a suicide bomber attacked a Coptic Christian Church during a New Year’s Eve Mass in Alexandria.
“There were only three soldiers and an officer in front of the church,” said Archbishop Raweis, the ranking Coptic cleric in Alexandria. “Why did they have so little security at such a sensitive time when there’s so many threats coming from Al Qaeda?”
