An Egyptian protester holds a cross and a copy of the Koran as hundreds protest in Tahrir Square, the focal point of the Egyptian uprising, to condemn sectarian clashes in Egypt on Friday. Several Christians, along with a Muslim, were killed in clashes last weekend in a town north of Cairo. Coptic Christians make up about 10 per cent of Egypt’s estimated 90m people. Attacks against Christians have increased since the ouster two years ago of autocrat Hosni Mubarak.
