This is no surprise. It is in line with the fact that the churches that Muslim mobs burned in Egypt last year, and that the government promised to rebuild, are still in ruins. Even though the Egyptian government has moved strongly against the Muslim Brotherhood, there are still very many people in Egypt, and in its government, who hold to the same world view as that of the Brotherhood — including the idea that Christian lives are not as important as those of Muslims, as Islamic law specifies. “The indemnity for the death or injury of a woman is one-half the indemnity paid for a man. The indemnity paid for a Jew or Christian is one-third of the indemnity paid for a Muslim. The indemnity paid of a Zoroastrian is one-fifteenth of that a Muslim.” (Reliance of the Traveller O4.9)

Egyptian Christians living in Libya were subjected to many risks in 2014. Ten persons were killed by armed terrorist groups and militants supported by the Muslim Brotherhood group and extremist Islamic currents.
