Revolution in Egypt

Good news stories about Christians and Muslims helping each other tend not to make the headlines. But there are many untold stories of peace-loving peope co-operating with each other as neighbours and friends, in ordinary everyday situations.


The story behind this picture is more dramatic. It was taken in Egypt 2 days ago. The photographer @NevineZaki lives in Cairo. She tweeted this picture showing Egyptian Christians in Tahir Square, Cairo protecting Muslims while they prayed during the demonstrations. Both groups are showing courage and faith.
