Throughout the Middle East Christians are being persecuted and murdered in odium fide. In Cairo this week a suicide bomber blew him or herself up in a chapel in the Coptic Cathedral of St Mark.

The crowd in the chapel were predominantly women and children as are most of the dead.

Egyptian Streets has the names of the dead, and pictures, potent reminders that these were real people, not just statistics or plaster saints.
