According to a Cairo activist group called Maspero Youth Union, members of the Muslim Brotherhood are attacking christian churches as vengeance for the brutal police repression on protestors camps:
After less than two hours from the start of MOI dispersing Muslim Brothers sit-ins in Cairo more than 6 churches have been attacked and reports on others being under attack ,, we are still 1130am !! I wonder what will happen by 10 pm !!! This is something you many not see on CNN !! and for sure you wont see it on AlJazeera !
The Maspero Youth Organization is one of the protest groups that helped to overthrow former presidents Mubarak and Morsi. It's named after the Maspero demonstrations that ended in 28 killed by police forces. The image above shows one of the churches being attacked, Saint George (margergiss) Sohag. They say it is burning right now in their page.
It's ironic that one of the claims of the Muslim Brotherhood is that the current Egyptian government is "attacking" Islam. Their site also claimed that the new president is "secretly a jew."
In this image: supporters of Mohammed Morsi—the former Islamist president overthrown by the military and civil opposition groups—push a police car off the 6th of October bridge in Cairo, Egypt. This happened near the protest camp in Nasr City, a district of Cairo, where many protestors died. The latest official count by the Egyptian Ministry of Health is 55 dead and 526 injured.
State media claims that the protesters have attacked police stations around the city.
