Christians gathered Friday in front of a Cairo cathedral holding signs denouncing a film that mocked the Prophet Muhammad. The rally occurred amid fears that Muslims will take out their anger onEgypt’ s Christian minority community. The country’s 8 million Coptic Christians were already feeling increasingly cornered amid the rise to power of hard-line Islamists inEgyptfollowing the ouster ofEgypt’s former leader Hosni Mubarak.
U.S.authorities have identified a self-described Coptic Christian living inCaliforniaas the key figure behind the inflammatory film, and the community at home fears it will bear the majority of the blame.
