Egypt, Alexandria, 1 January 2011 (At the new year’ Eve), a car exploded in front of a Coptic Christian church as worshipers emerged killing 23 people and wounding 97.

As the majority of Christians in Egypt belong to the Orthodox Coptic
church, Christmas is celebrated on the 7th of January. It was just
after the bombing and people decided to celebrate in a quite way
remembering those who died and praying for them.

Some people decided to watch the celebrations through the television, either scared or too old to go.
