STORY: SECTARIAN STRIFE IN EGYPT DATELINE: May 15, 2011 LENGTH: 0:00:34 LOCATION: Cairo VO Egyptian officials say 65 people were injured in the latest sectarian clashes in the capital Cairo. Christian protesters staged their latest demonstration on Saturday in front of the state television building in Cairo demanding measures to ease religious tension. But they clashed with a group of Muslim protestors, and the violence only ended when soldiers fired into the air and made 50 arrests. The new flare-up came after sectarian unrest left 15 people dead last week. Sectarian violence involving the minority Copts has become one of the major challenges for Egypt's military rulers, since Egypt's long-term leader Hosni Mubarak stepped down in February.
