Egyptians blame military of protesters death

Activists say the military intentionally opened fire on Christian protesters during Sunday's bloody demonstrations.

    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".
