Egypt Compensates Christians Following Sectarian Clashes

Aug. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Egypt’s government will give 10,000 Egyptian pounds ($1,645) as compensation to each Christian family that fled the site of sectarian clashes last month in which a citizen was killed, the independent Al-Shorouk newspaper reported, citing President Mohamed Mursi’s legal adviser.

A million-pound charity project will also be set up to serve residents of Dahshour, south of Cairo, and will be named after Mo’aaz Hassan, the 25-year-old who died in the clashes in late July, Al-Shorouk cited Mohammed Gadallah as saying. The nature and supervision of the project will be left to Hassan’s father to decide, Gadallah said, according to the newspaper.
