egypt coptsToday on Multiply Justice:

Mission Network News reports: Attacks against Christians in Muslim Brotherhood-controlled Egypt are unprecedented. “They’re very brazen. We’re talking women being raped in broad daylight, men being attacked, or the homes of Christians being ransacked.

This is not what they were wanting for their nation. To see these events unfold has been frightening for them as well.”
