At least five dead in Egyptian sectarian clash

CAIRO - At least five people were killed in a sectarian clash in Egypt on Saturday over a Christian woman who allegedly had converted to Islam, according to officials.
Interfaith relationships often cause tension in Egypt, where Christians make up about 10 percent of its 80 million people.
The strife represents another challenge to Egypt's military rulers who are trying to restore law and order after President Hosni Mubarak was forced to step down in a popular uprising in February.
