A picture, which it was drawn by Egyptian Muslim boy, criticizing church attacks in Egypt, has been circulating on social media.

In the painting, a mosque character consoles the church in Egypt because of the latest attacks around the country.

Up to 25 churches have been targeted in attacks since Wednesday's violent dispersal of two major camps set up by anti-coup protesters where thousands of people were killed by security forces.

Interim Prime Minister Hazem al-Beblawi on Thursday vowed that his government would deal decisively with attacks on Coptic churches.

More than 181 people were killed last Friday in mass rallies staged by Morsi supporters in several Egyptian cities to protest Wednesday's violent dispersal of their two main protest sites Cairo's Rabaa al-Adawiya and Giza's Nahda squares on Wednesday.

The Health Ministry said that hundreds people had been killed in nationwide violence since Wednesday.
