BEIRUT — Extremist groups are waging a "genocide" against Christians in the Middle East, a former Lebanese president said Monday after a New Year's suicide bombing of a church in Egypt killed 21 people.

Amin Gemayel, a Christian who served a six-year term as president in the 1980s, cited the attack in Egypt and recent violence in Iraq as he urged leaders to give Christian communities a larger political role."Massacres are taking place for no reason and without any justification against Christians. It is only because they are Christians," said Gemayel, who leads Lebanon's right-wing Christian Phalange party.
