Hundreds of Muslims burn down Christian homes as warning not to build new church

A 300-STRONG throng of Muslims torched a group of Christian houses in Egypt because they wanted to build a church on their own land.

The horror attack on at least four Coptic Christian homes in the Kom el Loofy village in Samalout, Upper Egypt, happened despite the landowner, Coptic man Ashraf Khalaaf, signing papers at a police station promising he would not use his property as a place of worship.

Coptics, who belong to the oriental Orthodox family of churches, make up the majority of Christians in Egypt and northeast Africa.

They have become increasingly persecuted by Muslims, especially with the rise of Islamic State (ISIS) over the past few years.

Kiri Kankhwende, press officer for Christian Solidarity Worldwide, said: “The torching of Coptic homes in Kom El Loofy underscores once more the urgent need for Egypt’s House of Representatives to enact a law regulating the construction and renovation of houses of worship in a manner that guarantees the right of Christians to worship in community with others.
