European Parliament to issue resolution on Maspero violence

The European Parliament is planning to issue a resolution condemning the violent events at Maspero on 9 October.

At least 27 people were killed and around 300 injured when Coptic Christians clashed with the military and thugs outside the state television building, known as Maspero, in Cairo.

In related news, former Minister of Endowments Hamdi Zaqzouq said he supports a special law on church construction, rather than the proposed unified law on places of worship, provided all Christian denominations approve of it.

Zaqzouq made his views clear as he expressed his condolences to Pope Shenouda III for the victims of the Maspero incident.
