On Wednesday, the Coptic Orthodox Church issued a statement saying it had not used dogs against a crowd of protesters. The crowds had gathered Monday in front of a cathedral in Abbasseya, to advocate for the right to remarry in church.

From the article:
Quote
Protesters accused the Orthodox Church of toughening its position on divorce, and they accused Paul of favoritism by granting some people licenses to remarry and not others. They threatened to stage a sit-in inside the cathedral until their demands are met.
