LA Times: In Egypt 13 killed in clashes between Copts and Muslims

Egypt Copts Muslims: In Egypt 13 killed in clashes between Copts and Muslims - latimes.com+

Egypt suffered the deadliest unrest since President Hosni Mubarak's ouster when clashes Wednesday between Muslims and Coptic Christians left 13 dead and 140 injured.

The bloodshed, on the edge of a Cairo slum, renewed concern about the government's willingness to protect the Christian minority. Army units intervened only after Muslims set fire to homes and businesses.
An Egyptian soldier intervenes as a group of Egyptians who want protesters to leave Cairo's Tahrir Square clash with those who believe that the gatherings in the plaza must continue. The Egyptian military said it had arrested about 100 men armed with knives and weapons who were planning to carry out a new attack on the protesters. Up to 20 people were injured earlier in the day when a few hundred men attacked protesters camped out in the square, according to doctors at a makeshift hospital there. (EPA / March 10, 2011)
