Three men in a car sprayed automatic gunfire into a crowd of churchgoers in Nag Hamadi in Qena, South Cairo. Sporadic and random killing took place by an anonymous gunman during a drive-by as Copts left the midnight Christmas Mass killing at least 5 and critically injuring 15. Sectarian clashes between Muslims and Christians are not uncommon in southern Egypt and in recent years have begun to unfortunately escalate.

 The Muslim Brotherhood Movement deeply condemn these erratic clashes and the latest random shooting between Coptic Christians and Muslims and called on all those responsible to be composed stating that these continued hostilities neither serve nor benefit the country. The Movement added that "Measures must be taken to help people from both religions unite as one for the good of the nation regardless of religion since both religions advocate peace and tolerance".
