The Christian protesters have been holding their sit-in outside the state television building in Cairo for nearly a week following deadly Christian-Muslim clashes that left a church burned and 15 people dead.
More than 100 people rushed into the sit-in area, lobbing rocks and fire bombs from an overpass and charging toward the few hundred protesters sleeping in the area. Vehicles were set on fire and fires burned in the middle of the street.
Police and army troops fired in the air to disperse the crowd, and a tree was set on fire under the overpass.

  2. Ugh, all this religion-based violence just blows my day.

    Why can't we all just believe in whatever religion we want without criticism...?

  5. I agree with Da2Shae. Why does it have to matter what we believe in?
