CAIRO (AP) -- New sectarian violence has erupted in a village near Cairo following the death of a Muslim man, prompting all the local Christians to flee, church and security officials said.
Tensions flare frequently between Egypt's majority Muslims and minority Christians, but clashes rarely result in such a flight of an entire Christian community.
The violence in Dahshour, about 25 miles south of Cairo, is the first case of sectarian clashes in the weeks since Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood took over as president. The election of an Islamist heightened fears among Egypt's Christian and other minorities that their rights would be curtailed, and that they might become targets of extremist Muslim attacks.
