Egypt: homes attacked

A crowd of around 300 Muslims attacked, ransacked and set on fire the homes of seven Christian families near Abu Qurqas, Minya province, on 20 May.

Souad Thabet (70), a Christian, was dragged from her home, stripped of her clothes by the mob and made to walk naked in the streets. The incident was provoked by rumours that Souad Thabet's son had been romantically involved with a Muslim woman, but she denies that this happened. A local Muslim family took her in, gave her clothes and hid her until her Christian nextdoor neighbours came to take her home.
