Amnesty International released a report on Tuesday excoriating Egyptian security forces for leaving a group of Coptic Christians to die at the hands of a massive and frenzied mob earlier this month.
According to the report, six Egyptian Christians were left to protect themselves during an 18-hour attack on July 5th in a village near Luxor. Four were eventually killed, and one was hospitalized.
CAIRO (AP) — With a mob of Muslim extremists on their tail, the Christian businessman and his nephew climbed up on the roof and ran for their lives, jumping from building to building in their southern Egyptian village. Finally they ran out of rooftops.
