Church Accuses Muslim Brotherhood of Involvement in Church Shooting

Several church officials are drawing a relation between the Warraq church shooting and other political incidents ongoing since ouster of deposed President Mohamed Morsy, suspecting the Muslim Brotherhood could be behind the incident.

Unknown elements attacked Coptic Christians in front of a church in Warraq while a wedding party was taking place, leaving four Copts dead, other nine injures. Security services have not yet arrested the perpetrators.

Priest Boules Eweida, ecclesiastical law professor, said fingers point to the Muslim Brotherhood, which might have been involved in the incident, after what he calls their failure to provoke the Copts by assaulting Egyptian churches, which have now pressured them to remount their attacks.

The shooting is not an attack on Copts, Eweida stressed to Egypt Independent, but all of Egypt. "They don't seek progress for Egypt but rather want to turn the clock backwards, which will not happen," he said.
