Outrage over Egypt marriage ruling

Coptic Christians angry over court ruling allowing divorcees to re-marry.

    A new confrontation has emerged between the state and the church in Egypt.

    The country does not recognise a civil marriage, where a person's marital status depends on the laws of his religion.


    But the high court has ruled that Coptic Christians can re-marry following divorce, something their church forbids.


    The decision has sparked outrage in the Coptic community, as Al Jazeera's Rawya Rageh reports.
