- Reuters AlertNet - Christian man killed in sectarian clash in Egypt - Forget sectarian tensions, security says this is just another Saidi stick-fighting/dancing incident: "Some security sources said fighting broke out after a Christian hardware merchant refused to give wooden sticks to Muslim minibus drivers.
They said the drivers had wanted the sticks for a fight with Muslim minibus drivers from a neighbouring town.
But others said a longstanding fight over land ownership between two families had spilled over after a man from the Christian family insulted a woman from the Muslim family."
