Original Message German, French Coptic churches threatened
By AFP January 4, 2011, 12:10 am

PARIS: French police are investigating threats made against Coptic churches in France in the wake of a deadly attack on one in Egypt, a security source said Monday.

The probe was launched after a church official filed a complaint, the source said. Germany's Coptic Christians have also received threats of attack by radical Muslims and asked for protection, a bishop said in a newspaper Sunday.

"The internet is full of threats of this kind against us.
The police have alerted us several times against attacks by radical Muslims," Coptic Bishop Anba Damian said in a report on Germany’s Bild's online edition.

The threats rose over the end of year festive season, he said.

"I have written to the interior minister to ask for protection," the bishop said.

Three Coptic Orthodox churches in the Netherlands feature on an al-Qaeda list of possible bombing targets, say church spokespeople.

The churches in Eindhoven, Utrecht and Amsterdam are named on the website Shumukh al-Islam, along with dozens of other Coptic churches in Egypt and across Europe. The website has called for bomb attacks on the churches during the Coptic Christmas on 7 January.
