[Video] Coptic Christian protest in Cairo attacked, dozens injured

November 18, 2011. ( In Cairo, a group of Coptic Christians were attacked while they were marching in remembrance of other pro-Coptic protestors who were killed in the past year.

Reports say that some 30 people were injured in the attack believed to have been carried out by Muslim activists. Most suffered minor bruises and cuts except for one young girl who was hospitalized after being badly injured.

The marchers were headed for Cairo's Tahrir Square, which has been the center of the Egyptian revolution since last January.

The Coptic Christians are a minority in Egypt, making up around 9% of the population.
