Islamists on an orgy of violence and destruction (all emphasis mine):
Following nearly a week of church burnings and Islamist attacks on Christian sites, the targeting of Christians in Egypt continued with reports of nuns being paraded in the streets, two Christians killed, a statue of the Virgin Mary decapitated, and two Christian female siblings being groped by a mob.
The Christian Science Monitor published a disturbing report suggesting at least some of the attacks were premeditated, with Christian homes and shops in one village being marked with red graffiti, "vowing to protect Morsi's electoral legitimacy with 'blood'" and mosque minarets blaring accusations that Christians were behind the Cairo killings. [...]
Islamists paraded three nuns on the streets like "prisoners of war" after they burned a Franciscan school, the Associated Press reported on Sunday. A Muslim woman offered them refuge, sparing them a more grisly fate. The AP reports that at the same location, two other female employees of the school, who are siblings, "were sexually harassed and abused as they fought their way through a mob."

In Cairo, the police attacked two protest camps full of Morsi supporters, using live ammunition and killing hundreds. When the news reached Al Nazla, a local mosque broadcast through its loudspeakers that Christians were attacking the protesters, say residents. Hundreds of villagers marched on the Saint Virgin Mary Church. They broke down the gate and flooded the compound, shouting "Allahu akbar" and "Islam is the solution," according to Christian neighbors.
The Obama Administration has demanded the Christian Copts to stop making life so difficult for the Muslim Brotherhood.
