At least 16 people were wounded when a church and Christian homes were attacked in a village near Cairo, the BBC reported on Wednesday.

Unrest in Dahshur, a city 40km south of Cairo, started after a Muslim man died of his injuries sustained in an earlier clash on Friday, according to the report.

Violence frequently flares between Egypt's Muslim majority and its Coptic Christian minority. This is the first instance since Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy was elected.
