Egypt's Copts Quit Constitution Drafting Panel

Ad Feedback

Egypt's Coptic Church quit a committee tasked with drafting the country's new constitution.

The Coptic Church called its participation in the committee "futile" after only six Christians were selected to take part.

The 100-member panel is dominated by Islamists, raising concerns about the content of Egypt's new constitution.

The Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party has staked out a clear majority on the panel.

Copts account for a majority of Egypt's 10 million Christian minority.
