    AN ANGRY crowd destroyed dozens of Christian homes and properties in an Egyptian village last week in protest over rumoured plans to build a church.

    The Muslim mob, which were described as “fanatic” by a terrified witness, began wreaking havoc at a Christian-owned building which was under construction.

    They weren't criticised in this case.
