Coptic Church guards killed by Gunmen in Libya

Two Egyptian policemen guarding a Coptic Church were killed when a bunch of gunmen opened fire on them on early Tuesday morning. The attacks on the Christians in Egypt have been rising steadily. Assaults on Christians have stepped up in Egypt since the removal of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi in July 2013. Last week about 13 Christians were kidnapped and held captive.

The attack took place in the provincial capital of Minya, which is located about 200 kilometers from Cairo. Minya is home to the nation’s largest Coptic community and they were planning to observe Christmas according to the old, Julian calendar when the incident happened. The police isolated the area soon after the attack and started searching for perpetrators. The officials there are not allowed to talk to the media as the government does not want any unrest in the region.

In Giza another policeman was killed in an attempt to dismantle a bomb which exploded in his hand and set him flying. These attacks on the Christian community are a mark of the growing hostility towards them in the region.
