Copts arrested in Alexandria.

According to an article appearing on, and written by Nabeel Sharaf Eldeen, there are 32 victims resulting from the clashes in Alexandria which followed the Knife attacks on Coptic worshipers as they exited three churches on Friday. Two among the victims are policemen. The clashes have also caused burning of 40 cars, setting a church on fire, destruction of 35 shops and the front of a mosque.

The situation now in Alexandria is quiet, but full of tension.

On the other hand, copts-united has published the names of 8 Copts who were arrested by the police after the last events. The organization has urged the police to free these Copts "as they are the victims and not the perpetrators".
