>> It's not just Sunnis and Shi'ites. A fatal clash between Muslims and Coptic Christians in Egypt on Tuesday highlighted religious tensions once again in the country. The Copts are led by their own Cairo-based pope and are the largest Christian minority in the Middle East, about 9 percent of Egypt's 80 million people.

>> Rep. Peter King, the chair of the House Homeland Security Committee, will begin a series of hearings tomorrow on the radicalization of Muslims in America, or a "witch hunt" as Muslim congressman Keith Ellison put it.
