Egipto: Musulmanes atacan a familias cristianas

El pasado 22 de julio, los imanes de la población egipcia de Saft Al-Kharsa aprovecharon el sermón del viernes para denunciar que los cristianos habían convertido sus hogares en lugares de culto cristiano, lo que provocó la ira de los creyentes de Alá y los delincuentes uniformados. A la salida de las mezquitas, una muchedumbre enfurecida discurrió por las calles de la localidad lanzando amenazas y apedreando las casas de los miembros de la pequeña comunidad cristiana. Finalmente, la Policía detuvo a Ishaq Fahim, un cristiano en cuya casa se habían celebrado ritos cristianos, y le advirtió de que no volviera en lo sucesivo a convertir su domicilio en una iglesia. 
Muslim Mob Attacks Copts in a Beni Suef Village in Egypt following Rumor about Church Construction

A video, which was posted on YouTube on July 22 and and which circulated on social media, shows a Muslim mob throwing stones at families in the village of Saft Al-Kharsa in the Beni Suef governorate. The video was shot from the balcony of one of the Coptic families. According to reports, the attacks followed the Friday sermons at the local mosques and were instigated by rumors that Copts had converted their homes into churches. albawaba.com reported that the tension started when security forces apprehended Ishaq Fahim, a Copt whose home was used as a church since the nearest church is in another village, 10 km away. The security forces warned Fahim against using his home as a church. Following the attacks, Fahim was arrested along with the Muslim rioters, and the security forces demanded that he sign a commitment that he would not turn his home into a church.
