(AINA) -- For the second time in as many days, Egyptian armed force stormed the 5th century old St. Bishoy monastery in Wadi el-Natroun, 110 kilometers from Cairo. Live ammunition was fired, wounding two monks and six Coptic monastery workers. Several sources confirmed the army's use of RPG ammunition. Four people have been arrested including three monks and a Coptic lawyer who was at the monastery investigating yesterday's army attack.

Dear Lord have mercy, preserve Your people, and Your holy places!

It's only going to get harder.

God help us all.

The saddest part: the violence will continue until (a) they kill some poor monk, or (b) some nation with lots of $$$ and influence coerces them into getting their act together.
