Copts link killings to politics

Some families of murdered Egyptian Copts say politicians are behind the shootings.

     

    Egyptian police have said the three suspects arrested over a mass shooting outside a Coptic Christian church on January 6 have denied involvement.

    It was the worst attack against Christians in Egypt in nearly a decade.

    Some of the victims' families have told Al Jazeera that politicians may have been behind the shooting.
