Min of Tourism: Cabinet will complete unified worship places law on Wednesday

Min of Tourism: Cabinet will complete unified worship places law on Wednesday | Cairo | Scoop.it

"Egyptian Minister of Tourism Mounir Fakhry Abdel Nour said the Egyptian Cabinet will complete the final version of the law on building places of worship on Wednesday. The law will cover building churches and other places of worship and will also make important decisions encouraging investment.

In an interview with CBC broadcaster Lamis el-Hadidy, Abdel Nour said the demolition of the Marinab church caused the outbreak of sectarian violence on October 9, in which 27 people were killed.

Abdel Nour said the church was built in violation of the law, but that its construction had not elicited any comment from area residents." (Shaaban Hedeya)
