25 Dead in Egypt Clashes

New scuffles broke out in Egypt on Monday after bloody riots sparked Sunday between the country's Christians, Muslims, and security forces. Twenty-five people have died and 322 more have been wounded in the worst violence Egypt has seen since Hosni Mubarak's ouster. Coptic Christians, 10 percent of Egypt's population, were protesting the interim military government for being too lenient on Muslims, who they say launched a recent string of anti-Christian attacks. Much of Sunday's violence was blamed on Egypt's Army, which is accused on all sides of dealing with street violence in a disorderly manner and not giving a clearer timetable for handing over power to civilians. The White House issued a statement on Monday saying the U.S. "stands with the Egyptian people" and that clashes "should not stand in the way of timely elections."
