Egyptian authorities arrested the mastermind of Saturday’s sectarian violence in ‎Imbaba early in the morning today, as well as 14 more suspects.

A protest by Muslims, reportedly many of them Islamist Salafists, in front of a church in Imbaba, Giza turned deadly as clashes between them and Copts left 12 dead and scores injured on Saturday night.

Don't go back please
There is nothing good about the middle ages. Those who want to take us back to the 14th century should read history and think twice. It was tribes attacking each other for their food and women. Stealing,killing and rape were a normal way of life. The major industry was slave trade. Thanks to laws and constitutions and the rise of human rights movement that changed this savage behaviors. You don't want to live in a society that believe in kill or get killed and the man with a bigger weapon wins it all.

Sadly...
Do u call "mastermind" a Muslim fool who spread the "convert" rumor and a stupid Christian cafe-owner who fired into the air to disperse church attackers? These are NOT masterminds; the are two dominoes in a greater tragic domino effect, triggered by those ruling the country.

Oh, really!
Wow! A catchy and vacuous title, to impress Westerners who read this English-speaking state-run newspaper, hoping the West will keep pumping its funds to Egypt. The title should be: arrest of the jerk (not mastermind) who spread the rumor, and the cafe owner who fired into the air. Do you call these two "masterminds"? Ridiculous! The real masterminds are the lmams of mosques, the thousand jihadists the army has freed, the former NDP members ... and above all, the institution protecting all these: the army.

Who is the "mastermind"
It is unclear from this report whether the mastermind of Saturday's terrorist activities in Imbaba has really been caught. Without a name, or at least a name for the organization to whom he/she belongs, the Egyptian authorities' report is unconvincing. Was it the terrorist or a victim of terrorism who was arrested?
