A Muslim riot leaves an Egyptian village without any Christians. According to The Associated Press, the village of Dah-shour's entire Christian community -- as many as 100 families -- fled to nearby towns amid violence this week. As an angry mob was rampaging through town, the flock's priest was smuggled out of the village in a police van. At least 16 homes and properties of Christians were pillaged and some torched and a church damaged. The unprecedented exodus underscores how sectarian divisions are taking a turn for the worst, complicated by the problems of post-revolution Egypt, a country where 10 percent of the population are Christian.
