Christians 'flee Egypt town after death threats' - FRANCE 24: "Officials at the local church informed the authorities of the threats, but no action was taken, they added. Days later, a shop belonging to one of the families was fired on with automatic rifles, witnesses said. The events prompted the families to leave Rafah but there were conflicting accounts over whether they had done so voluntarily or been evicted. "The families have left Rafah and gone to El-Arish," one official said on condition of anonymity. . . . Father Mikhail Antoine of El-Arish church told AFP "the families moved voluntarily because they feared for their lives after the threats." He said the Coptic population of North Sinai numbered 5,000 to 6,000, adding that around seven Coptic families had been living in Rafah before the move. Copts have been nervous since Islamists came to power following an uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak last year. . ."
