Egypt’s Christians Attack Western Media Coverage

The Egyptian Coptic church has released a statement backing the country’s military-backed government, and slamming the western media for its coverage of the violence in Egypt, which has killed more than 600 people.

Referring to perceived sympathy for the Muslim Brotherhood by western media outlets, the statement, translated by Al Arabiya, called on the West to “read objectively the facts of events, and not give international and political cover to these terrorists and bloody groups.”
