Egyptian Coptic Christians joyfully waited outside the Virgin Church in Cairo for the bride to arrive to join the groom for their wedding.

Gunmen on a motorcycle fired on Egyptian wedding guests outside a Coptic Christian church in a Cairo suburb on Sunday night, killing three people, security sources said.
Three people, including a girl aged eight, died when gunmen on motorcycles opened fire on a wedding party outside a Coptic Christian church in Cairo.
Anba Pakhomious, the Coptic Orthodox metropolitan of Beheira and Matrouh, said that deposed President Mohamed Morsi did not pay attention to the troubles facing Coptic Christians, or their rights as citizens.
