Coptic Christians in Egypt

Postby ken123 » January 1st, 2011, 2:32 pm

At least 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians were killed in a bomb attack in an Alexandrian Coptic Church after Mass on New Years Day, this comes afters months of attacks on Iraqi Christians. Coptic Christians comprise about 10% of Egypts population of 80 million. Two of the worlds oldest Christian communties days may be numbered, at least in their native lands.
