In Atfih, on 1 March 2011, the metropolis's core in Atfih has seen skirmishes between a few Muslim and Christian humans.
And that befell due to the fact there was a courting between a younger Christian and a Muslim girl. An outrage arose and Muslims of the metropolis went to the church of the 2 martyrs and set it on fireplace. Hence, the Christians tested in front of Maspiro TV building worrying that the church must be built within the identical area and Christians must be lower back to their homes within the metropolis adequately.
