EGYPT: 8-year-old girl and 2 adults shot dead at Coptic Church in Cairo

Masked gunmen, most likely Muslim Brotherhood savages on motorbikes, shot randomly at guests as they left the Coptic Christian church in the Waraa neighborhood, on Sunday night.


SKY News (h/t MZ) Eyewitness Maged Hindy said: “There was a lot of traffic outside the church when a motorbike and a car approached the crowd outside the church. The car stopped and the gunmen on motorcycles started shooting and ran away.”

The interior ministry confirmed that the eight-year-old girl, as well as a woman and a man were killed. It said nine others were wounded in the attack. The church’s priest, Father Dawoud, said: “What is happening is targeting all of Egypt and not only the Christians. This is enough, the people are getting sick and tired of this.”

Islamic savages accuse Coptic Christians of backing the coup that toppled Mr Morsi, who belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood. Rights groups say that Copts, native Egyptian Christians who account for six to 10% of the country’s 85 million people, have come under attack mainly in the central provinces of Minya and Assiut.
