ICC Note: One of the dozens of churches destroyed by the Muslim Brotherhood in a string of attacks in August 2013 has been rebuilt with the help of the Egyptian Army. The Amir Tadros Church in Minya was one of more than 100 Christian churches, homes, or businesses destroyed in the attacks. While some have been rebuilt or restored, many are still in a state of disrepair from the attacks.

11/15/2015 Egypt (Watani) – Yesterday, Saturday 14 November, saw the official opening of the newly rebuilt church of Amir Tadros (St Theodore) in Minya. The church was rebuilt by the Egyptian Armed Forces after its complete destruction at the hands of the Muslim Brothers on 14 August 2013.

Back then, the MB attacked, plundered, and torched some 100 Christian establishments, churches, and houses in Egypt in retaliation for the downfall of the MB Islamist regime that had come to rule Egypt in the wake of the 2011 Arab Spring.
