      WASHINGTON - Egyptian state and central security officers
      and soldiers attacked a small historic Coptic church in
      Assiut during Mass, arresting several deacons and others,
      throwing communion bread on the floor and stepping on it
      with their boots, according to reports received by the U.S.
      Copts Association.

      According to the group, the attack on St. George Coptic
      Orthodox Church occurred Friday.
