    Egyptian activists have accused the military of intentionally opening fire on Christian protests last Sunday.

    At least 25 people were killed when armed forces clashed with Coptic Christians. But in a press conference on Thursday, a group of activits said the death toll was higher than the official count.

    They accused the military of dumping "the bodies in the Nile".
