Sectarian madness in Egypt

The sign says we have to destroy everything.

Sectarian madness in Egypt

Mob violence has left five dead and at least eight wounded near Cairo. Chrisitan and Muslim crowds began fighting, with some shooting. Shops were smashed and an apartment torched.

The cause of all this? Some kids graffitied a wall. Not with religious symbols, btw. With a message including a backwards swastika (not in its Nazi context).

After that there was no choice but to riot. It must have seemed like the thing to do at the time.

These people, on both sides, show all the mature judgment Herald remembers his young soldiers displaying on a Friday night out, with none of the social graces.
