Egyptian Islamists paraded nuns in Cairo as prisoners of war, looted churches and replaced a cross with a banner that represented the Al Qaeda flag, the London Daily Mail reported. The mobs of Islamists also set fire to the church classrooms.
“We are nuns. We rely on God and the angels to protect us,’ said Sister Manal. “At the end, they paraded us like prisoners of war and hurled abuse at us as they led us from one alley to another without telling us where they were taking us.’
The mob hit, insulted and groped two Christian women employed by the school.
