CHRISTIANS in Egypt were attacked during a prayer service by a man wielding a “sharp tool” and shouting Islamic slogans.

According to Egyptian Sunday newspaper Watani, based in Cairo, and human rights NGO International Christian Concern (ICC), two people were injured in the violence, which is the latest in a string of anti-Christian attacks.

ICC said a 22-year-old man injured two Christians who were attending the Church of St George in the Egyptian capital.

The man is said to have been shouting Islamic slogans before police rushed to the scene and arrested him.
