News the HP Doesn't Cover: Coptic Christian Mourn Cairo Victims

The suffering of the Coptic Christians in Egypt continues, but don't expect the Huffington Post to care a bit about it:
The elderly, silver-haired Christian could hardly speak Monday, sitting stunned in a church where the evening before, suspected Islamic militants on a motorcycle sprayed his family’s wedding party with automatic weapons fire, killing his son, his wife’s sister and two granddaughters aged 8 and 12.
“It’s God’s will. They are always beating us down. Every other day now, they do this,” the 75-year-old Fahmy Azer Abboud said as he waited for their funeral to start.He spoke haltingly of his dead granddaughters, both named Mariam.“They were pure angels. They had the world’s kindness inside them. They helped me and shared with me everything they had,” Abboud said.The girls were waiting to enter the Church of the Virgin Mary in Cairo’s Warraq district for the wedding of another of Abboud’s granddaughters when the gunmen struck about 9 p.m. Sunday. The wounded included seven relatives, with his other son, Nabil, among them, he said.
