Amid continuing protests inCairo, Egypt's Armed Forces has promised to rebuild the torched Helwan church in its original location, according to state TV.

Prime Minister Essam Sharaf is currently meeting with the protesters and discussing their demand that the governor of Helwan (south Cairo) be replaced.

The church was set ablaze by a group of Muslims following a dispute between two families over the romance between their Muslim daughter and Christian son. As the church blazed, Muslims rescued the church clerks and sheltered them.

unity
to people loved each other AND THE RESULT WAS BURNING A CHURCH AND TERRORISING CHRISTIANS. IN CIVILIZED COUNTRIES THIS SHOULD NOT HAPPEN IT'S BARBARIC AND MUST NOT HAPPEN. IGNORANCE AND PREJUDICE IS A DISEAS THAT MUST BE ERADICATED BY EDUCATION.
