Egyptian Coptic Christians carry one of the coffins of the victims of sectarian violence during an October 10, 20011 funeral procession at the Coptic Cathedral  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.
