Egypt's Copts prepare for Christmas

Christians fear another attack as they prepare to celebrate traditional Christmas Eve mass.

    Egypt's Coptic Christians around the world are getting ready to celebrate their traditional Christmas.

    It comes less than a week after 23 people were killed in an attack on a church in the Egyptian city of Alexandria.

    Egyptian activists have called on Muslims to form human shields in front of the churches as a gesture of solidarity, and security has been beefed up after threats against the churches were posted on the internet.
