Coptic Christians in Egypt
One of the unintended consequences of Arab Spring in Egypt is Coptic Christians (who some say are closer descendants to the Egyptians who built the pyramids) are more at risk for persecution and sectarian-motivated violence now that the Mubarak regime has been unseated.  Say what you will about Mubarak, he kept a lid on ethnosectarian violence in Egypt, and protected the Copts.  Here is a teaser article from LIGNET (Langley Intelligence Group NET) on that situation:

With the Muslim Brotherhood's rise to power in Egypt, the country's beleaguered Coptic Christians are growing increasingly fearful that their plight will soon worsen. A senior Coptic Church official tells LIGNET what is really happening in Egypt under the rule of Mohammed Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood and why Copts are more vulnerable than ever before.
