Coptic Christians feeling pressure in Egypt

This article from the New York Times discusses recent attacks against Coptic individuals and monasteries in the most populous Arab country.

The article is interesting for its weaving in of the history of conflicts as part of the context for the attacks, which Egytian security officials are stating all have secular issues at their bases.

There is also some discussion at the end of the role of bloggers in trying to encourage efforts for peace and understanding.
