Dozens arrested after Egypt's deadly clashes

CAIRO (AP) -- Egypt's official news agency says dozens of "instigators of chaos" have been arrested after deadly clashes between angry Christians, Muslims and security forces that left 24 dead and at least 200 wounded.
Sunday's clashes were the worst sectarian violence since the uprising that ousted Hosni Mubarak in February.
The early Monday report by the MENA news agency did not say whether those arrested were Christians or Muslims.
Funeral services for the slain protesters were to be held Monday at downtown Cairo's Coptic Cathedral.
The rioting had lasted until late into the night, bringing out a deployment of more than 1,000 security forces and armored vehicles to defend the state television building along the Nile, where the trouble began.
