CAIRO (Reuters) - Twenty-nine people were injured in Cairo on Thursday when residents clashed with a group of Christians marching through the capital to commemorate those who died in confrontations with the army on October 9, state news agency MENA said.
The Coptic Christians were marching from Cairo's northern Shoubra suburb toward the landmark Tahrir Square in the city center when the clashes broke out.
"The locals in the neighborhood of Bulak attacked the group on their way to the square and threw stones at them," a security source told Reuters.
