One Dead, Two Injured in Egyptian Muslim-Christian Clash

One man died and two others were injured in southern Egypt, a police source said on Thursday, in the latest in a series of clashes between Muslims and Christians in Egypt.

On Wednesday dozens of Muslims threw stones at a private building in Damshaw Hashim village, which they believed a Christian resident was turning into a church without state permission.

Members of the Christian Coptic minority, who make up 5-10% of Egypt’s 70 million people, say they face restrictions on building churches, among other problems.
