Violence Against Christian Copts in Egypt Continues Despite Fall of Muslim Brotherhood

By Stoyan Zaimov, Christian Post Reporter, March 26, 2014

Violence in Egypt against Coptic Christians has continued despite the fall of former president Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, with believers still facing abductions and the
government seizing their property, the Board of Inquiry in Cairo reported.

The report, according to Fides News Agency, shows that Copts, who make up close to 10 percent of the population, are continuing to face "endemic forms of violence and abuse" in many parts of Egypt, particularly in the governorates of Luxor, Sohag and Aswan.



"The worrying scenario has been reconstructed in detail on the basis of meetings with community representatives, civil society organizations and material provided which witness this phenomena of violence," Fides reported.
