One Christian protester was killed near Saints Mary and Michael Church in Talbiya, by the Pyramids, Giza. The police are trying to halt the church construction, which is in its final stage. The site is under 24 hour prayer-protection by the faithful and clergy. Over 2,000 people joined in support of the church.
Nearly one million Copts live in the Talbiya area, and yet have no church. The Church authorities had all the necessary permits.
