Egyptian Coptic Christians crowd into the Cathedral for a funeral for victims of sectarian violence October 10, 20011 in Cairo, Egypt. At least 26 people, mostly Christian, were killed during sectarian clashes that saw the worst violence since the Revolution that toppled former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak earlier this year. Egyptian Coptic Christians make up about 10% of Egypt's 80 million population and periodically violence flares between the Christian minority and the majority Muslim population.
