Fatal Christmas Eve Attack On Christian Copts In Egypt

Six members of the Christian Coptic faith and a security official are dead, the result of a drive-by shooting outside a church where they had attended Christmas Eve services in Egypt.

The shootings were in retaliation for the rape in November of a Muslim girl, allegedly by a Christian man.

Tensions are high between Egypt's Muslim and Coptic communities in the best of times.
