Coptic church in Belgium to receive the remains of the martyrs of Alexandria

St. Mark Church in Belgium received parts of the remains of the martyrs of the Saints Church in Alexandria.

The Church has prepared a cabin to put the remains inside.
 
The 2011 Alexandria bombing was an attack on Coptic Christians in Alexandria, Egypt, on Saturday, 1 January 2011. Twenty three people died as a result of the attack, which occurred as Christian worshipers were leaving a new year service. Some 97 more were injured. The attack was the deadliest act of violence against Egypt's Coptic Christians in a decade, since the Kosheh massacre in 2000 left 20 Copts dead.
