Christians attacked in Egypt

There have been a number of attacks on Christians in Egypt reported since Mohammed Morsi was forced from office.

One recounted what happened on the night of 3 July, when the army deposed the Islamist former president.

"Angry mobs and thugs rampaged through houses owned by Christians. They started with the house of my cousin, looting and setting it on fire. We weren't taking any chances - we fled the village," he said.
