In this Thursday, Oct. 2, 2013 photo, Egyptian Coptic women pray at a church burnt by radical Islamists on Aug. 14 in the town of Abanoub, some 400 kilometers (250 miles) south of Cairo. In a show of resilience, some have held Masses and weddings in churches that have been left blackened shells without doors or windows, with only a makeshift altar.
