Coptic Christians disown film-maker19 September 2012
Egyptian Christians are watching closely the fall-out from last week's violent protests in Cairo and Libya over a US-made film that mocks Muhammad.
Four days of sporadic clashes outside the US Embassy in Cairo left two people dead and 250 wounded.
US authorities identified Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a Coptic Christian living in California, as the key figure behind the production, leading some Egyptian Copts to fear collective punishment.
Christian groups denounced the US-made film early on, with a statement from Egypt's Coptic Church last Wednesday calling it "part of a wicked campaign against religions, aimed at causing discord among people."
Youssef Sidhom, editor of weekly Christian newspaper Watani, said that local Copts had expressed genuine anger and successfully distanced themselves from the film.
