Witnesses: Morsi backers target churches in Egyptian town of Malawi

Witnesses in Egypt said supporters of deposed Islamist president Mohammed Morsi ransacked a Catholic church and set fire to an Anglican church in the city of Malawi. The Brotherhood, which has been accused of inciting anti-Christian sentiment, denies targeting churches.
Christians make up roughly 10 percent of Egypt's 84-million population and the Coptic Church authority issued a statement on Friday saying it "strongly supports the Egyptian police and armed forces".
