Egypt: Death toll rises to 9 in Egypt sectarian clashes

12th Apr 2013

CAIRO, (Xinhua): The death toll in Egypt’s recent sectarian clashes rose to nine on Thursday
after another person died of his wounds from fights between Muslims and Copts, a health
ministry spokesman told Xinhua.

A 21-year-old Muslim died of severe burns from a petrol bomb thrown at him on Saturday,
Yahya Moussa said.

The sectarian clashes started early Saturday after some Coptic children allegedly drew some
crosses on a wall of an Islamic institute in Khosoos of Qalyubiya north of Cairo, killing four
Copts and a Muslim.

On Sunday, clashes erupted again in Cairo during the funeral at the capital’s main church for
the Copts, leaving another two killed and almost a hundred injured.

Also, brawls restarted in Khosoos after the Copts returned home from the funeral, leaving one
killed.

The recent clashes between Muslims and Copts in Egypt raised fears of renewed sectarian
strife that would threaten the national unity much needed for the country’s democratic and
economic transition.
