Egypt cabinet to meet over violence that killed 23

CAIRO - Christians clashed with military police, leaving at least 23 people dead in Cairo, and the Egyptian cabinet called an emergency meeting for Monday, vowing the violence would not derail the country's first election since Hosni Mubarak was toppled.
Christians protesting about an attack on a church set cars on fire, burned army vehicles and hurled rocks at military police who they said used heavy-handed tactics against them. It was some of the worst violence since the February uprising.
