Pope Shenouda returns from medical trip to US

Pope Shenouda III, the head of the Coptic Orthodox Church, arrived in Cairo on Thursday, after spending three weeks in the Cleveland Clinic in the US, where he underwent medical tests on his kidneys and leg.

He was warmly welcomed by clerics and Coptic citizens upon his arrival at the Church's headquarters in the Abbasseya neighborhood of Cairo.

A police officer tried to ban journalists from entering the Church's headquarters but eventually withdrew when the reporters threatened to stage a sit-in.

In related news, Sherif Doss, president of the Coptic General Authority, called on all Coptic candidates in upcoming parliamentary elections to coordinate with the authority regarding their electoral campaigns.
