Clashes in Egypt between Christian Copts and police


Clashes broke out Thursday in southern Egypt between more than 2,000 Christian Copts and police after the Christmas Eve killing of six Copts in a drive-by shooting, police officials said.

The violence broke out in the southern town of Nagaa Hammadi where a policeman was also killed and six Copts wounded Wednesday when three men in a car opened fire on Christmas eve shoppers in the centre of town, they said. AFP
