Egyptian Coptic Christians vent their anger in front of the state television building in Cairo after the recent attacks on Christians and churches. In the past few weeks, riots have broken out at two churches in southern Egypt, prompted by Muslim crowds angered by rumors that Christians were building new churches. The violence is particularly frustrating for Copts because after President Hosni Mubarak's fall, the new government promised to review and lift heavy restrictions on building or renovating churches.
