ICC Note: In the latest clashes in Egypt, six Coptic Christians were injured in Minya in Upper Egypt. The supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi are believed to have attacked the Christians, forced them to stop working, and also attacked some houses late last week. The security situation for the country’s Christians has become increasingly dangerous.
8/02/2013 Egypt (AllAfrica) – Six Copts were injured in a Minya village after clashes with pro-Mursi demonstrators on Thursday evening.
