– 69 IN EGYPT TO PRISON LIFETIME FOR CHURCH ARSON ATTACK
A court in, on 04/29/2015, Egypt has sentenced 69 Islamists to life in prison for setting fire to a church in a town near Cairo. Two minors were also jailed for 10 years for their alleged role in the blaze, which started when violence erupted in Kerdasa on 08/14/2013.
A wave of unrest swept the country that day after hundreds of supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi were killed in a crackdown in the capital.
Scores of churches and Christian property were looted and torched.
Members of Morsi’s Islamist movement, the Muslims Brotherhood, accused the Coptic Christian minority community of participating in what they denounced as a “coup”.
They cited Pope Tawadros II’s appearance alongside the military chief – now president – Abdul Fattah al-Sisi when he announced that Morsi had been removed from office following widespread protests against him.
