Ahram Online, Sunday 15 May 2011

The first of a batch of churches have been handed back to Copts to reopen

Prime Minister Essam Sharaf has promised to hand over 16 churches today to the Copts.

Security investigations have revealed that it is safe to hand the churches over.

The 16 churches are the first batch to be handed over, after the Minister’s Council announced last week that they will reopen all churches which were closed for security reasons.
