(CNN) - As violence again scars Egypt, Christians in the country believe they're being targeted amidst the chaos following a government crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood protest camps in Cairo.

There have been dozens of attacks on Christian churches, homes and businesses in the past 24 hours. Full details of the attacks are still emerging, as the country reels from its bloodiest day in recent history.

52 Churches Had Been Attacked In The Space Of 24 Hours

Bishop Angaelos, the Cairo-born head of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom, said he was told by colleagues in Egypt that 52 churches had been attacked in the space of 24 hours beginning Wednesday, as well as numerous Christian homes and businesses across the country.

Ishak Ibrahim, a researcher with the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, told CNN he had confirmed attacks on at least 30 churches so far, in addition to the targeting of church-related facilities, including schools and cultural centers

• The Muslim Brotherhood burn the churches and the Army announce that they will rebuild them all from their budget , I lived in USA for 3 years and I don't understand how the USA government is Supporting the Muslim Brotherhood !!! I am a Muslim and condemn this act of terror which has nothing to do with religion , the Muslim brotherhood are going crazy because the Egyptian people are seeing them now for who they really are !!! Credit to all patriotic Christian Egyptians who are taking the pressure without asking for foreign intervention while a terrorist group is seeking the world to help them control the country !!!
