In Pictures: Egyptians commemorate Maspero massacre

Hundreds of Egyptian protesters march in Cairo to mark one year since the Maspero massacre in 2011



Egyptian Coptics and Muslims attend a march in Cairo on October 9, 2012 to mark one year since nearly 30 demonstrators were killed in a Coptic Christian demonstration that was violently crushed by security forces.

Hundreds of Egyptian protesters march in the working class district of Shubra in Cairo holding portraits of members of the former military council, as well as portraits of the victims of the massacre.

On October 9, 2011, thousands of demonstrators marched from the neighbourhood of Shubra to Maspero to denounce the torching of a church in the southern province of Aswan. The protest was attacked and violence flared when the army and riot police charged at the protesters, leaving 26 Coptic Christians, one Muslim man and one policeman dead, says Amnesty International.
