Egypt: Muslims Attack Church, Injuring 16

In Egypt, Muslims attacked a church and nearby homes in the village of Dahshur, 25 miles south of Cairo, last night, injuring 16 Christian Copts. The attack was a result of the death of a Muslim who died of wounds sustained in the violence between the two groups this past Friday.

Eye witnesses reported that the Copt population has since fled the village, fearing another attack from the Muslims, who are a majority there.
