New Trial Ordered for Accused Killers in El-Kosheh Massacre (Egypt)

Worthy Christian News » Egypt

On Monday, an Egyptian appeals court overturned a controversial verdict that absolved most defendants in the country's worst massacre of Christians in decades in early January 2001 and ordered a retrial. Over the weekend of December 31, 1999 – January 2, 2000, as the much of the world was concerned about Y2K, Egyptian Christians were being attacked and murdered by Muslim mobs in El-Kosheh, a small village 300 miles south of Cairo. One year later, an Egyptian court acquitted all of the defendants charged with the murders of 21 Christians.
