Timestream: The Persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt


Genocide Watch staff have published the fourth Timestream in a series of critical genocides in the world.


Coptic Christians in Egypt have been persecuted for decades, and it is imperative that this issue is brought to the attention of international leaders. Several attempts have been made on the lives of Coptic Christians in the country, and many Copts have died because of this. This Timestream highlights the oppression and killing, dating from historical cases of discrimination and persecution to the most recent attacks and responses from the Egyptian government. Genocide Watch urges action to be taken to intervene and stop further persecution and killings.
