At a special Christmas service at St Mark’s Cathedral in Cairo on 6 January, President al-Sisi made a landmark apology to Egypt’s Christian community for the delays in restoring torched churches. This was President al-Sisi’s second visit to a church at Christmas. He is the first Egyptian president ever to make such a visit.
