Witnesses: Residents prevented much worse attack in Egypt

Witnesses: Residents prevented much worse attack in EgyptCAIRO (AP) — Witnesses to an attack outside a Coptic Christian church in Egypt that left nine people dead said it was residents and worshippers, not police, who kept the death toll from soaring even higher. One man in particular — a 53-year-old resident who pounced on the gunman as he was reloading his automatic rifle — likely saved dozens of lives.
