The 2005 Alexandria riot was an anti-Christian riot in the Egyptian port city of Alexandria. The riot erupted on 21 October when a group of Muslims staged a demonstration outside St. George's, Coptic church, to protest a play they said offended Islam which resulted in 3 deaths. The situation got out of hand after some protesters began throwing stones at the building and at police who were present at the scene.
