At least two people have died on Saturday as Egyptian police clashed with Coptic Christians demonstrating against the government's rejection of their appeal to build a church.
The protests came a day before the country's general elections, which has seen one of the government's largest crackdowns on opposition parties.
Coptics are one of the country's numerous groups that have been margianalised and politically under-represented for years and many believe the vote will not bring change for them.
