Christians in Egypt are suffering some of the worst attacks in their history. It has become so bad that Christianity may disappear from Egypt. In a recent story, a group of Christians was leaving Church when they were attacked by a gang of Muslims who beat them with rocks and then set fire to their homes:
International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that a mob of radical Muslims burned three Christian homes and injured eight Christians, including two women, in the village of Kom El-Loufy, located in Egypt’s Minya Governorate. The attack took place on Thursday, April 13, shortly after the Christian villagers held a prayer service in a local Christian’s home.
“We asked the local security authorities to grant us a permit [to] hold prayers and they agreed,” a Christian eyewitness, who wished to remain anonymous, told ICC. “They granted us a permit to hold these prayers and the security forces came to secure the mass.”
“At about 10:00 a.m., after the worship ended, we started on our way to our homes,” the Christian eyewitness continued. “Then, a mob of Muslims gathered and began to attack us and our homes. They hurled stones at our homes and set fire on three houses owned by Christians named Issa Saroufim, Morris Botros, and his brother Faris Faris. They also injured two Christian women named Amel Rizk, whose arm was broken, and Camelia Sawiris, whose leg was broken. Six other Christian men were injured. Their names are Girgis Shenouda, Nagy Mahrous, Nadr Khalifa, Younan Khalaf, Samir Ayad, and Milad Azmy.”
There are approximately 1,800 Christians who live in Kom El-Loufy village where there is no local church. (source)
