Persecuted Christians - V

Please pray for the Copts.  Copts are Egyptian Christians, and although, like the Christians in Indonesia, make up at least 10% of the population, they are facing constant persecution.  Many are denied work permits.  But worse, the Muslims are targeting them.  Remember the Palm Sunday bombing of the Coptic church in Tanta, where 27 people were killed and 78 wounded?  Despite having an excellent police force, the terrorists have not been found.  And that same day in Alexandria, another bomb went off in a Coptic church and 17 were killed and 48 wounded.
