Deadly clashes erupt in Cairo

Christians marching against the military and demanding more rights, come under attack in Egypt's capital.

    Following earlier clashes with Muslims, Christians marching against the military in the Egyptian capital of Cairo have come under attack. This recent violence has left at least 12 people dead.

    While some blamed hardline Muslims, others said the clashes were symptomatic of rampant lawlessness in the country following the revolution that overthrew long-time leader, Hosni Mubarak.
