Cairo: Muslims in the Governorate of Al Manufiyya, located in the north of Cairo, in the region of the Nile Delta have raised donations to build a Coptic church. The church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, and the concrete solidarity manifested by Muslim believers is also considered as a result of the wave of emotion in the country after the massacre of Coptics in Libya, by extremists linked to the Islamic State (ISIS). Coptic Orthodox Bishop Benyamin stressed that the initiative developed in the Governorate, is a message addressed to the whole world.
