Copts in Diabia demand protection

Ramy Ramzy, Coptic activist, said that many Coptic Christians in Diabia village, Beni Suef, fear for their lives as a number of the Muslims are marking their homes and shooting gunshots before their houses at night to frighten them.

It's worth mentioning that Diabia village witnessed a sectarian violence incident in which 12 houses of the Copts were set on fire, and more than 20 Copts were injured in addition to the arson of Angel Michael and St. Antony church.
 
People believe there is a plan to force the Copts out of the village at night this week.
