Local Muslims held three days of angry demonstrations to protest against the granting of legal status to a church in the village of Sultan Basha, around 150 miles south of Cairo.
Demonstrations began after Friday prayers on 6 July. Local Muslims chanted, “never a church in our midst” and Christians in the village locked themselves in their homes for fear of violence. Local police did not intervene.
Protests took place the following day, on 7 July, and again after Friday prayers on 13 July. During the protests on 13 July, a local police official reassured the demonstrators that no church would be permitted in the village.
