Financial Times Reports on the Coptic Situation in Egypt
IT'S NO SECRET that 2008 has been a trying year for Egypt. The Financial Times recently published an article on the tensions in the county. The article quotes sources inside Egypt who indicate that the situation has reached an "alarming level." The article also notes, for example, that H.H. Pope Shenouda III, who normally encourages the sides to come to a quick reconciliation after a conflict, refused to allow talks with the assailants in the Abu Fana clash and insisted they be prosecuted.
