Protest after 13 dead in Copt-Muslim clash in Cairo

Officials in Egypt say clashes between Muslims and Christians in Cairo have left at least 13 people dead and 140 wounded.

Violence erupted on Tuesday night in the Cairo suburb of Mokattam when Christian Copts blocked a highway to protest at the burning of a church last week.

Hundreds of Egyptian Christians were on the streets of Cairo today in protest.
