Egyptian student wounds nun in church in Alexandria amid theater dispute

A Muslim student stabbed and slightly wounded a Coptic nun inside a church in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria on Wednesday amid tensions over a theater performance considered offensive by Muslims.Police arrested the male and are now questioning him over the incident, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is unauthorized to talk to the media.

The incident follows a protest on Friday by over 1,000 Muslims outside the church against the distribution of DVDs of the drama entitled "I Was Blind but Now I can See."

The drama features a Christian university student who converts to Islam when a group of Muslim men promise him money. When he becomes disenchanted with his move, the men threaten him to stop him from returning to his original faith.

Coptic Christians make up about 10 percent of Egypt's population of 70 million. Christian-Muslim relations usually are fairly smooth in Egypt, though violence flares from time to time, particularly in small southern communities, and some Copts complain of discrimination, the AP reports.

In December, angry Copts protested in Cairo for four days and clashed with police when the wife of a priest fled her home in the south to convert to Islam. She later returned home and resumed practicing Christianity. A.M.
