Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood vows to Protect Churches

CAIRO: Egypt’s powerful Muslim Brotherhood said on Wednesday it would protect churches during Coptic Christmas in January in a bid to prevent deadly attacks on Christian places of worship. “We have decided to form Muslim Brotherhood committees to protect the churches so that the hands of sin do not ruin the festivities like they did several times under the old regime”, the group said in a statement. It urged the ruling military council, which took power when a popular uprising ousted Hosni Mubarak in February, to help secure the churches.

“We call on the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces and the police to protect the churches in the same way they protected polling stations during the elections”, the Brotherhood said. Last year, more than 20 people were killed in an apparent suicide bombing as hundreds of worshippers were leaving the Al-Qidissin (The Saints) church in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria after a New Year’s eve mass.
