Ahram Online, Wednesday 12 Jan 2011

Hundreds of Copts rallyed outside Samalout's Good Shepherd hospital in upper Egypt, throwing stones and clashing with police, who fired tear gas at them, security officials told Ahram Online.

Five copts are being treated in this hospital after a gunman boarded a train in Samalout and opened fire on Tuesday, killing a Copt and wounding five others -- four women and a man.
