Cairo hopsital attacked following military violence against Christian protesters

Writing for The Arabist, Ursula Lindsey notes that following yesterday's extremely violent attacks against Coptic Christians in Egypt in which at least have 35 Christians have been killed and more than 300 injured, she visited a hospital in Cairo:

Visited the Coptic Hospital this morning, and were told that while the bodies of 17 dead protesters lay inside, it was attacked by gangs last night and Christian men in the neighborhood had to defend it for hours. The footage below is of those clashes, from Al Masry Al Youm [more].

Please, pray for peace, and for the safety of our brothers and sisters in Christ.
