Businesses owned by members of Egypt’s Coptic Christian community were burned overnight January 17-18 in the southern village of Marashda in Qena province. Four stores owned by the Christian minority were attacked by incendiaries after Muslim villagers accused one of the store owners of the sexual assault of a 6-year-old girl. Villagers are demanding an investigation into the alleged assault by the Christian man. Hundreds of protesters have since assembled outside a Coptic Christian church in the village, while police have fired tear gas in an effort to disperse hundreds of enraged Muslims. Protesters threw rocks at the church during the daylight hours of January 18.
