Muslims, Copts aim to ease tensions

Muslims help rebuild Egyptian church set ablaze, but some fear gesture will not be enough.

    Reconstruction has begun on an Egyptian church set ablaze last week.

    Egypt's army is supervising the work on the church in a small town south of Cairo.

    But, as Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr reports, some fear the gesture will not be enough to ease tensions between Muslims and Coptic Christians.
