CAIRO, EGYPT (Worthy News)– Thousands of Egyptian Muslims shouting "Allahu Akbar" left their mosques Wednesday to destroy a social services building owned by the Coptic Church.
Security forces arrived in the village of Fanous after the building was already razed; despite having all the necessary government permits for a reception hall and a kindergarten, Muslims insisted that the structure was going to be used as a church.
Mosques in surrounding villages used loudspeakers to call upon the faithful to help their fellow Muslims in Fanous because Christians were "building a church".
According to AINA, no one was arrested, not even the imams who changed "call to prayer" into "call to demolish".
