On 31st December 2010, a car bomb exploded in front of the Two Saints Church in Alexandria, Egypt, killing 21 worshipers and injuring more than 70 others. In the days afterward members of the Christian minority in Egypt, who make up as much as 10% of the country’s population, began demonstrations around the country. In Alexandria itself, according to news reports, the bombing sparked street clashes between police and angry Copts, who hurled stones and stormed a nearby mosque. Numerous demonstrations also occurred in Cairo.
