Ahram Online, Monday 10 Oct 2011
Reports that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that the US plans to intervene to protect Egypt’s Copts are false, a US State Department source has revealed.
Yesterday, several internet sites circulated quotes attributed to Clinton that the US plans to send Special Forces to protect Egyptian churches after the attacks directed at Copts yesterday in front of the State TV building in Maspero.
