Islamic hard-liners stormed a mosque in suburban Cairo, turning it into torture chamber for Christians who had been demonstrating against the ruling Muslim Brotherhood in the latest case of violent persecution that experts fear will only get worse.

Such stories have become increasingly common as tensions between Egypt’s Muslims and Copts mount, but in the latest case, mosque officials corroborated much of the account and even filed a police report. Demonstrators, some of whom were Muslim, say they were taken from the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters in suburban Cairo to a nearby mosque on Friday and tortured for hours by hard-line militia members.

“They accompanied me to one of the mosques in the area and I discovered the mosque was being used to imprison demonstrators and torture them,” Amir Ayad, a Coptic who has been a vocal protester against the regime, told MidEast Christian News from a hospital bed.

Ayad said he was beaten for hours with sticks before being left for dead on a roadside. Amir’s brother, Ezzat Ayad, said he received an anonymous phone call at 3 a.m. Saturday, with the caller saying his brother had been found near death and had been taken to the ambulance.

“He underwent radiation treatment that proved that he suffered a fracture in the bottom of his skull, a fracture in his left arm, a bleeding in the right eye, and birdshot injuries,” Ezzat Ayad said.

If this is true it is a gross misuse of a place of worship.

Couldn't agree more. It's bad enough that there are non-stop religious fights (and not just in Egypt), but they should all respect their own and the others houses of worship, IMO.

Yes, they should have been tortured elsewhere. Or wait a minute Jafar, don't you think you may have missed the point, and the fact that muslims were torturing their opponents just might be the story here?

IF it's true?

It was verified by the people that run the mosque! There is no 'if' about it.

"IF" it is true? jafar. Do you believe someone just made up the story for you to deny?

"IF" you weren't such a hypocrite, and recognized what you deny so well. You might be respected here too!

Is there any poster that you won't abuse or pick fights with?

Why are you the board expert on Muslims?

What about the places of worship in lands the Muslims ethnically cleansed, and turned historic Christian churches into mosques?

Places like Constantinople, errr, I mean Istanbul. And Cyprus?
