Pictures of the Year 2011
Two Copts fight with man (C), who onlookers say was a Muslim, prior to clashes between Coptic youths and riot police, who later opened fire with rubber bullets and tear gas, along the streets outside a Coptic Orthodox church in Alexandria, 230 km (140 miles) north of Cairo, January 1, 2011. A bomb killed at least 17 people outside the church in the Egyptian city of Alexandria early on New Year's Day and the Interior Ministry said a foreign-backed suicide bomber may have been responsible.
