Egypt’s Christians pray for peace after months of unrest

Egyptian Coptic Christians attend the New Year mass service at the Virgin Mary Coptic Christian church in Cairo's working class neighborhood of Al-Warrak on December 31, 2013Egypt's Christians rang in the new year Wednesday with prayers for peace after months of unrest, but expressed no regrets over backing the military's overthrow of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi. Coptic Christians, who make up about 10 percent of Egypt's 86 million people and constitute the largest Christian community in the Middle East, have long complained of official discrimination and feared attacks by radical Islamists. After security forces violently dispersed two pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo in August, setting off clashes in which hundreds of demonstrators were killed, Islamist mobs unleashed their fury on Copts, setting fire to homes, shops and churches, mainly in central Egypt. But Copts interviewed this week stood by their decision to support the massive protests demanding the ouster of Morsi, who many Christians feared was trying to transform Egypt into an Islamic state.
