International Christian Concern | Oct 25, 2018

This past December, ICC reported on a mob attack in an Egyptian village of Kafr El-Waselin. The mob was protesting a service building used by St. Tadros Church. On October 15, a Giza court acquitted all 20 defendants.

One of the defendants was Coptic Christian Eid Attiya, who had been charged with erecting a building without a license. He was previously sentenced in January to one year in prison and a fine of 360,000 EGP (roughly $20,000).
