      Leaders of the Orthodox, Catholic and Anglican churches in Egypt met
      on Sunday to discuss possible security measures to be taken in and
      around Christian places of worship in light of recent al-Qaeda threats
      against Egyptian churches.

      They also reportedly discussed the possible reinstatement of Egypt's
      Coptic Church in the Middle East Council of Churches.

      “[Coptic] Pope Shenouda doesn’t want the Coptic Church to return to
      the council,” said Anglican Church leader Safwat al-Bayad.

      According to al-Bayad, the meeting also tackled the issue of sectarian
      tension in Egypt.

      “Every week after Friday prayers, demonstrations are held by Muslims
      to incite sectarian strife,” he claimed.
