During Holy Mass Sunday 19 August at the Church of Mar-Girgis (St George) in the village of al-Zaytoun in Beni-Sweif, some 100km south of Cairo, the worshippers and Fr Takla Girgis, the priest who was saying Mass, were stunned to find one of the police guards responsible for securing the church break into the church and run up to the sanctuary where he heatedly shouted: “You apostates; you all are apostates”.

Members of the congregation managed to catch the policeman and lead him outside the church where they handed him over to the other police-guards outside the church. The police-station officer was notified; he directly arrived and arrested the policeman who was suspended and is being questioned.
