Muslims Celebrate Ramadan With Attack On Coptic Christians in Egypt

Attackers chanted ‘we don’t want a church’ while police let them go, arresting victims instead

Copts in the village of Qaryat Al Bayda reported Friday they had been subjected to sectarian violence following attacks on the pastor of a local church and a services building affiliated with the church.

The village, located to the south of Alexandria off the Cairo-Alexandria Desert Road, witnessed violent incidents as a group of people destroyed the car of Pastor Karas Nasr of the Coptic Church of the Virgin and the Angel Michael, said local residents.
