Egypt's Coptic church criticized over el-Sissi support rallies at UN

CAIRO-  Egypt's Coptic Christian church is facing criticism over its role in organizing rallies in support of President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi during his visit to the UN General Assembly.


Egypt's Christian minority has strongly supported el-Sissi since he came to power following the military's overthrow of an Islamist president in 2013.


But this week dozens of prominent Christians released a statement expressing concern about the church's deepening involvement in politics.
