More violence against Copts in Egypt
This time the “reason” was that a Christian woman, forcibly converted to Islam has left her husband:
Two years ago, Dimiana Makram Hanna, a 23-year-old Christian woman in Egypt, was kidnapped, forcibly converted to Islam, and compelled to marry a Muslim. She finally had enough of his abusive behaviour and ran away last month. Local Muslims went on an anti-Christian rampage, destroying businesses and homes, and demanded the poor woman’s return. Coptic Christians were beaten in the streets, and twenty Christian-owned shops and the village church were vandalised.
The mob of 4000 Muslims shouted “Kill the infidels” as they ran amok. Only 15 rioters were arrested, 11 of whom were quickly released by prosecutors.
It is common knowledge that Dimiana had fled a husband she did not wish to live with. She stayed away for some two days then, hearing of the riots in her village and the great harm inflicted upon the Copts, and that her uncles had been questioned by the police, she handed herself in on Friday evening.
