French police tighten secuirty at Coptic churches

PARIS  — French police said Monday they have tightened security at Coptic Christian churches and opened a probe into online messages threatening terror attacks against such religious sites in France.
The Internet threats were discovered soon after a bombing against Coptic Christians in Egypt killed 21 people on Saturday.
A priest in the Paris suburb of Chatenay-Malabry lodged a legal complaint about the threats after a member of his congregation noticed the messages online, police said.
