Egypt: 21 Christians were killed in New Years Day attack

Historically Egypt has been known for its religious and ethnic diversity. But since the 1970's, persecution and acts of violence against Christians in Egypt has been on the rise. The most recent attack happened at Saints Church in Alexandria, Egypt where more than 21 people were killed and close to 100 wounded. 100 Huntley Street takes a look at the reasons behind the persecution and what Coptic Christians in Egypt and abroad are doing to bring the issue centre stage.
