Coptic protesters denounce army during funeral

by , under Blog

Copts denounce the army during the funeral of those killed on the previous night during an attack on demonstrators in Moqattam (where a community of Coptic garbage collectors reside) protesting the sectarian attack on a church in Atfeeh, south of Cairo in Helwan. The army had intervened yesterday. Thirteen were killed. It’s unclear how those Copts were killed–by the sectarian thugs or by army fire. In the video above, you find protesters shouting “the army brought the thugs” and “the army hit us.”
