Thirteen dead after Copt-Muslim clash in Cairo

At least thirteen people have died and 140 are injured in clashes between Muslims and Coptic Christians in Cairo.

Both Coptic Christians and Muslims were killed in the violence, which began during a protest by Copts against last week's burning of a church.

Witnesses said both sides had been throwing stones and the army fired into the air to disperse the crowds.
