Copts Enter 6th Day of Protests Over Church Burning

Protests over the burning of a church in Helwan have continued into their sixth day, with Copts saying that they will not stop protesting until all their demands are met. In addition to the rebuilding of the church (which has already been agreed to by the Egyptian government) the protesters are calling for the arrest of those responsible for the church's burning and the dismissal of the Governor of Helwan, who is seen as complicit in the incident. The Copts have been joined in their protest by sympathetic Muslims. More here.
