Copts fear election results!

Here is an interesting audio report from Alexandria, Egypt.

The reporter, Soraya Nelson, speaks of the uncertainty that Copts reflect through their opinion about the results that current elections are going to bring.

Copts, who feel encouraged to go and make their vote count, do not seem to have enough hope because regardless of the results, most likely the results will aim for a new Islamic government that would continue to discriminate minorities like them.
