Egypt now: Coptic Christians killed in Cairo clashes!!

At least 10 Coptic Christians were shot dead and 110 wounded by gunfire in religious clashes with Muslims in Cairo.

The clashes between Christians and Muslims erupted in the poor working class district of Moqattam midafternoon Tuesday when at least 1,000 Christians gathered there to protest the burning of a church last week.
Fighting broke out when dozens of Muslims showed up in Moqattam, inhabited by Copts who work as refuse collectors and who had blocked a main north-south artery in the capital.
People threw rocks from both sides and witnesses said soldiers at the scene fired shots into the air in a bid to disperse the crowds.
Christians, who make up about 10 per cent of Egypt's 80 million population, complain of systematic discrimination and have been the target of several sectarian attacks.
More here:
The Telegraph newspapers are owned by the Barclay Brothers, who are, apparently, practising Roman Catholics. The attitude of their papers to this discrimination against their brother Christians by mozlems, is to be honest, extremely puzzling! There are no calls to give these people equal rights to their mozlem compatriots or to the Ayatollah of Rome to take action or make a complaint to mozlem leaders about this iniquitous behaviour!!
As far as I can see, Roman Catholics are no better than mozlems and no different to pagans!!
