Current Religious-Based Conflicts

EGYPT

Moslems versus Christians

          In January, 2000 the bloodiest conflict in 20 years took place between Moslems and Coptic Christians in a small town about 300 miles (500 kilometers) south of Cairo. More than 20 were killed with another 33 wounded.  What started out as an argument between a Coptic Christian and Moslem family quickly deteriorated into bloodshed between others Christians and Moslems.

          Though the Egyptians as a nation are basically a tolerant people, this periodic conflict there between two of the world's great religions continues.
