Hours after Egypt’s army chief on Sunday warned that the military was ready to intervene if necessary in the face of dangerous divisions in Egyptian society, a mob led by Salafist Sunni sheikhs attacked a group of Shi’ites, killing four.
Eyewitnesses told the Al-Ahram newspaper that up to 3,000 people attacked Shi’ites’ houses in a village near Cairo, following weeks of incitement by Salafist preachers. Police put the size of the mob at several hundred.
The killings come at a time of heightened sectarian tensions across the region, fueled in part by the Syrian conflict.
