Christians in the southern Egyptian town of Dalga are living in fear after Islamist supporters of former President Mohammed Morsi drove out the police and took over the city of 120,000 on July 3.
Since then, Christian churches, businesses and homes have been attacked.
A Muslim mob set fire to an ancient monastery and stole everything inside. They took icons from a 1,600-year-old chapel and even dug up the remains of Christian saints looking for buried treasure.
"Even the remains of ancient and revered saints were disturbed and thrown around," Coptic Orthodox priest Father Yoannis said.
There are about 20,000 Christians in Dalga, a city in southern Minya province.
