Mob torches Christian shops in Egypt ahead trial

Published: 06.02.14, 21:21 / Israel News

A mob of angry Islamic extremists burned shops owned by Coptic Christians near the ancient city of Luxor on Monday, hours before a trial for a Coptic Christian accused of blasphemy, a security official said.


The official said saw the mob throw gasoline bombs at the shops in the village of el-Mahameed near Luxor. The official said authorities are investigating the attack. The attack came hours before the start of a trial in Luxor for Kerolos Ghattas, a young Coptic Christian charged with contempt to Islam over a series of alleged Internet postings. (AP)
