A group of Muslim thugs attacked Copts in Dayr al-Muharraq in Asyut governorate after a fight that left three Copts wounded by gunfire.
The fight started on May 23, 2011 morning when Copts hit a truck owned by Muslims because it was trying to hit a motorcycle belonging to Copts from Rizqah village in Dayr al-Muharraq.
After the problem ended, armed Muslims went to al-Muharraq and detained Copts inside their homes.
Some Copts came out of their homes defending themselves, but Muslims fired bullets at them, injuring three Copts: Eliya Sharoubim, 'Isām Ibrāhīm and Bahā' Sābir.
The thugs were not arrested so far.
